Praise for this book

"Contemporary Readings in the Philosophy of Literature is a comprehensive anthology of analytic approaches to the study of literary texts, ideal for use in upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses. The volume offers excellent coverage of the puzzles and problems associated with fictional truth, classification, interpretation, belief and emotional response, and the moral significance of literary works." -- Catherine Wilson, CUNY Graduate Center

"This is a wonderful, comprehensive collection of analytic essays which displays the breadth and depth of the philosophical puzzles with which philosophers of literature deal. It is the book I have been waiting for to teach philosophy of literature to undergraduates." -- Sarah Worth, Furman College
