Famous quotes containing the word fiction:

    ... the main concern of the fiction writer is with mystery as it is incarnated in human life.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature. He cannot distinguish fiction from fact, and belongs in the same category as the people who send cheques to radio stations for the relief of suffering heroines in soap operas.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)
