Quotes by Wayne C. Booth  (?)

“There is pleasure from learning the simple truth, and there is a pleasure from learning that the truth is not simple.”
Wayne C. Booth, The Rhetoric of Fiction

“A literary work ... is, during the time one reads it, a friend with whom one has chosen to spend one's time. The question now is, what does this friendship do to my mind? What does this new friend ask me to notice, to desire, to care about? How does he or she invite me to view my fellow human beings?”
Wayne Booth

“We may exhort ourselves to read tolerantly, we may quote Coleridge on the willing suspension of disbelief until we think ourselves totally suspended in a relativistic universe, and still we will find many books which postulate readers we refuse to become, books that depend on 'beliefs' or 'attitudes'...which we cannot adopt even hypothetically as our own.”
Wayne Booth
