“The creation and development of narratives play a crucial role in the construction of our identities, cultures, and worlds. (…) So, that we respond emotionally to fictions is not only consistent with the fact that we react to actual situations, but it is also required by the affective engagement that narratives demand from us, as much in the quest for fictional entertainment as in factual, quotidian circumstances.” (Stephen Davies, “Responding Emotionally to Fictions”)
