Fiction stories show hidden messages about different morals and decisions that determine what kind of person you want to be. Childhood stories always involve a heroic rescue or an adventure where the main character defeats the bad guy and saves his pals or a helpless person in trouble.

    In his well-known article “Fiction and Non-fiction”, Kendall Walton introduces his theory of fiction as a game of make believe, in which representational art can be presumed as props that impose specific imaginings.

The following paper will critically assess how Walton’s position in ‘Fearing Fictionally’ is related to his argument in…
