Summary
Publisher's description: Fiction, Intuition, and Creativity is a search for the origins of fiction and for an understanding of how these origins influence the finished work of art. It examines the connection between the creative process and fictional form by discussing how intuitive consciousness provides the environment in which creativity flourishes and how writers make use of intuitive creativity in their novels. Looking first at how the link between intuition and creativity has been explored in philosophy, psychology, and aesthetics by thinkers such as Henri Bergson, William James, Carl Jung, and Benedetto Croce, the book proceeds to an extended discussion of what novelists reveal about the workings of their creative processes, focusing on the intuitive dimension of aesthetic activity. This includes the role of the unconscious and of emotion, the need for an incubation period before the novel emerges into consciousness, and the sense that characters inhabit an autonomous realm and frequently operate beyond the control of their authors. The works of four novelists are discussed in depth. In the fiction of Charlotte Bront, ︠ intuition functions as content; the intuitive consciousness of Jane Eyre and Lucy Snowe empowers them to know and to act in a world that would impede their ability to do both. Henry James2s life-long fascination with his creative process and his understanding of its intuitive underpinnings lead to the development of his later style and his focus on consciousness. Virginia Woolf2s career is analyzed as a steady progression toward her reshaping of the novel into an intuitive vehicle. In the fiction of Doris Lessing, intuition again appears as content as Lessing makes intuitive consciousness the basis of her psychic politics. This unique work offers much for those interested in the structure and development of fiction, the subject of creativity and intuitive consciousness, or in the four authors analyzed at length in the text
