Symbolic Distance In Relation to Analogy and Fiction

By S. Buchanan Copyright 1932

    First Published in 1932 Symbolic Distance presents the grammatical account of the structure of symbols and the description of the field within which fictions arise. The author argues that it seems improbable that distance should become an exact technical term in art criticism as long as the divorce between works of art and symbols is maintained. The book discusses important themes such as the analysis of fictions, genesis of fictions, and reduction of fictions. This is an interesting read for students of English literature.
