This book examines the relationship between creativity and cultural values, including Western and Eastern perspectives. Creativity, as process and product, occurs within as well as against tradition from early to modern times. Shirley Paolini offers a pluralistic account of theories of creativity, drawing upon literary criticism, aesthetics, and psychology. She makes a case for Janusian thinking, the Collective Unconscious, and the dreamlike experience. The author extends theories of creativity in a series of primarily literary case studies. She compares works of Dante, Kafka, Dali, Blake, and Joyce; Dostoyevsky and Solzhenitsyn; Twain and Michener, and Ai-Ling Chang and Li Ang. The book shows how creativity operates under varying cultural values and expectations.
