-we read several articles about the benefits of reading literature.Several of these articles suggest that reading literature helps readers cultivate a sense of empathy toward others. For instance, in her article, Chiat points out that in literary fiction, “the characters disrupt reader expectations, undermining prejudices and stereotypes. They support and teach us values about social behavior, such as the importance of understanding those who are different from ourselves.”Percy Shelley makes a similar point in “Defense of Poetry,” and suggests that art can encourage us to empathize with others. Do you agree or disagree with this claim? To support your view, discuss two of the stories assigned in the fiction module and focus your answer around two or three characters.If you agree with the claim, you might focus on how a character disrupts the reader’s expectations and helps the reader understand those who may be different than the reader in some way. If you disagree, you might focus on how/ why a character may not encourage empathy; do you think this lack of empathy stems from how the character is presented in the story itself, from experiences you may bring to story, etc.?
