Literary fiction is probably the most active experimental laboratory of the world-constructing enterprise. Commentators usually admit that fiction conveys some kind of truth—the truth of the story of Faust, for instance.
They acknowledge that fiction usually bears some kind of relation to reality—for example, the London of Dickens. But both the status of the truth and the nature of the relationship have baffled, frustrated, or repelled a long line of thinkers. Beginning with a discussion of the extant semantics and pragmatics of fictionality—by Leibniz, Russell, Frege, Searle, Auerbach, and others—he relates them to literature, literary theory, and narratology.
He also investigates theories of action, intention, and literary communication to develop a system of concepts that allows him to offer perceptive reinterpretations of a host of classical, modern, and postmodern fictional narratives—from Defoe through Dickens, Dostoevsky, Huysmans, Bely, and Kafka to Hemingway, Kundera, Rhys, Plenzdorf, and Coetzee. By careful attention to philosophical inquiry into possible worlds, especially Saul Kripke's and Jaakko Hintikka's, and through long familiarity with literary theory, Dolezel brings us an unprecedented examination of the notion of fictional worlds.

Dolezel is a master of making things as complicated as possible. That said, once you get used to the heavy academic language, it's a pretty good read. Sep 23, Dan rated it liked it.
Impeccable and impressive scholarship, for sure. But it also reads more often than not like a clever satire of the most tedious kind of academic writing.
