The Blazing Thing: On Imagination in Fiction [Laura Van Den Berg]
In “Telling Tails,” Tim O’Brien writes, “In fiction workshops, we tend to focus on matters of verisimilitude largely because such issues are so much easier to talk about than the failure of imagination. . . . So we nibble at the margins, shying away from the central difficulty.” The word “imagination” often comes up in dialogues about fiction, but what does it mean for fiction to be imaginative? And how can we encourage our own imaginations to move in new, unanticipated directions? This class will aim to engage that “central difficulty.”
