Fiction writer Joanna Scott writes about Isak Dinesen (who suffers from “waning” popularity in recent decades), in a review that provides perceptive comments on fiction (and not just Dinesen) like this one:
“Dinesen is suggesting in this passage that a storyteller has a set of interrelated responsibilities. She should entertain and absorb her audience, and she should offer us some insight into our imaginative abilities. Ultimately, the fiction should return us to the world with sharpened awareness of our individual potential.”
