Diaz de Chumaceiro, Cora L.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v37 n3 p193-214 3rd Qtr 2003
This essay discusses how Maude Adams influenced James M. Barrie's creative process and became his inspiration. Set change theory is underscored as a cognitive explanation for Barrie's illumination. The psychoanalytic theory of transference is proposed as an underlying mechanism for facilitating the change of mental set during the incubation stage. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
