To Know or Not to Know: Comprehending Protagonists' Beliefs and their Emotional Consequences.
De Vega, Manuel; Diaz, Jose M.; Leon, Inmaculada
Discourse Processes, v23 n2 p169-92 1997
Explores how undergraduate readers take the protagonist's mental perspective in stories involving conflicting beliefs about a situation. Demonstrates that readers with privileged information build emotional inference corresponding to the protagonist's (wrong) beliefs; inferences related to protagonist's beliefs are backward inferences at the text integration stage; and readers are able to dissociate the protagonist's and their own beliefs about narrative situations.
