  1. Joseph T. Palencik (2008). Emotion and the Force of Fiction. Philosophy and Literature 32 (2):pp. 258-277.
    Attempts to explain emotional responses to fiction such as Jenefer Robinson's use of research into the psychology of emotions. Robinson argues that triggers for emotion are much the same way whether a stimulant is real or imaginary.
