Aubry goes beyond just "getting it" as a means for understanding fiction and shows us a step-by-step challenging set of questions readers might use to broaden their comprehension tool kits, without which one might be continually doomed to the mundane class of readers known as "middlebrow."
I appreciated the thoughtful close readings Aubry provided, as well as the array of books he covered. However, I would have liked more ethnographic/archival analysis of therapeutic readings of the texts in question.
