On Imagination. Writers [on Writing] Thomas Fleming

On Imagination

Writers [on Writing]: Thomas Fleming

Thomas Fleming agrees with the Cornell critic, Cushing Strout:

"He (Cushing Strout) argues that the imagination is not simply a mental device that "makes things up." On the contrary, it is an intellectual tool, closely wedded to the writer's intelligence. What it chooses to imagine for a novel is integrally connected to the essence of what the writer, consciously or unconsciously, wants to say about the subject."
