“To identify with a person in a novel or play is to identify oneself, to produce an identity for oneself. It is to give oneself a world of fictional people, to start to let one’s identity merge with that of fiction. It is, finally, also to create a character for oneself, to create oneself as a character.”

– Bennett & Royle, An Introduction to Literature, Criticism and Theory, 4th ed., 2009
