Lewis on literature

"Literary experience heals the wound, without undermining the privilege, of individuality. ...In reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. ...Here -- as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing -- I transcend myself, and am never more myself than when I do."

~C.S. Lewis, An Experiment In Criticism
