Literatures and Images: A Window to the Study of Creativity

The idea of the image (or images) in literature has been subject to nuanced and multifarious observations since the time of Aristotle. However, in the present age, the predominance of visual art due to the proliferation of television, film and advertising has arguably led to different innovative use of images in literature.
