Hi Susan, I suggest that we consider books as artifacts as real, touchable, holdable, in short sensible. The characters in the book are represented for us on paper and ink both real things. If you and I read “Sense and Sensibility”, we read the same story that we could share if we choose.
Yes, Jane austen had a one-off talent I think. I'm glad I read them way before the BBC made the TV series, but the latter much enhanced the value of the books.

And I've just remembered one of the books that made me cry when I was young (although reading them today would probably make me wince a bit!!) and that is Little Women, when Meg died. I hope I am right in thinking even then that I thought it was rather overdone!

The story may be made up by the author but it is a real story. I suggest that we humans can attach our vast emotionality to almost anything real. Books are real. Stories are real stories.
Agreed.

Susan
