Tell Me Something I Don’t Know [That I Know]

The response we make when we “believe” a work of the imagination is that of saying: “This is the way things are. I have always known it without being fully aware that I knew it. Now, in the presence of this play or novel or poem (or picture or piece of music) I know that I know.”

Thornton Wilder, preface to 3 Plays
