more on setting

“If a piece of literature does not create the setting for us, if it seems to occur in no-time or in vague-place fuzzy-time, we cannot experience it, or else we must experience that vagueness itself as crucial to the action (emphasis mine)” (Burroway 133).

Compare your description with a partner’s. Explain the differences between your description and your partner’s.

Do we all see the same thing?
