Description

Intends to chart what happens in the embodied minds of engaged readers when they read literature. This study postulates that there is a free-flow of bottom-up and top-down affective, cognitive inputs during the engaged act of literary reading, and that reading does not necessarily begin or end when our eyes apprehend the words on the page.
