Amongst an author’s mechanisms for communicating a shared sense of time with one’s readers is the use of highly affective, visceral, and/or proprioceptive linguistic cues. I’m looking for work that either explains or demonstrates how the affective communication of felt time works in contemporary American literature. Interdisciplinary work especially encouraged.
