Do you regard fiction as being layered with lies or as a powerful exposer of life-truths?


PDXKaraokeGuy and I have differing opinions: He speaks in his Hub "What Is Creative Non-Fiction?" and I countered with my Hub "The Amazing Truth About Fiction".

    I don't understand why the word 'lie' is being used to describe fiction. Fiction is storytelling for entertainment and information. Lying is purposeful and nasty deception.

    I like going with 'an ultimate exposer of life-truth' also! :) Your Star Wars example is quite heady!
