Literature and Emotion not only provides a defining overview of the field but also engages with emerging trends. Answering key questions such as 'What is emotion?' and 'Why emotion and literature today?, ' Patrick Colm Hogan presents a clear and accessible introduction to this exciting topic. Readers should come away from the book with a systematic understanding of recent research on and theorization of emotion, knowledge of the way affective science has impacted literary study, and a sense of how to apply that understanding and knowledge to literary works.
