dc.description.abstract Marja-Liisa Vartio (1924 1966) is considered one of the foremost innovators of consciousness presentation in the Finnish post-war modernism. Mysterious Minds explores the portrayal of fictional minds in her novels. It is the first study to examine the subject in depth. The volume suggests alternative methods for reading Vartio’s fictional minds not only as private, solipsist and self-reflective consciousnesses but also as social, collective and interconnected entities. These interacting minds sometimes remain unreadable and mysterious even to characters themselves. The volume is an enjoyable and beneficial read both for students and scholars sharing an interest in recent cognitive and affective narrative studies as well as for everyone interested in Vartio’s oeuvre.
