  EXAMPLE

  When ^ art museum wants a new exhibit,

  (1) an

  it (never/) buys things in finished form and hangs

  (2) never

  them on the wall. When a natural history museum

  wants an exhibition, it must often build it.

  (3)exhibit

  Literature is a means by which we know ourselves. By it we

  (26)

  meet future selves, and recognize past selves; against it we match our

  present self. Its primary function is to validate and re-create the self

  in all its individuality and distinctness. In doing so, it cements a

  sense of relationship between the self and the otherness of the book,

  and allows us a notion of ourselves as sociable. Its shared knowledge

  is vicarious experience; by this means we enlarge our understandings

  (27)

  of what it means to be human, of the corporate and independent

  (28)

  nature of human society. The act of reading the book marks both our

  difference in and our place in the human fabric. The more we read,

  (29)

  the more we are. In the act of reading silently we are alone from the

  (30)

  book, separate from ones own immediate surroundings. Yet in the

  (31)

  act of reading we enter other minds and other places, enlarge our

  (32)

  dialogue with the world. Thus paradoxically, while disengaging from

  the immediate we are increasing its scope. In silence, reading

  activates a deeply creative function of consciousness. We are deeply

  committed to the narrative which we coexist while engaged in

  (33)

  reading. All kinds of present physical discomfortness may be

  (34)

  unnoticed while we are reading, and actual time is replaced by

  narrative time. To imaginatively enter a fictional world by reading it

  (35)

  is then both a liberation from self and an expansion of self.
