  9. 9. Literary Fiction vs. Genre Fiction Genre fiction transforms the character. The character is irrevocably changed after the Hero’s Journey. Literary fiction transforms the reader. A literary story transcends the rules of genre fiction. It uses parallels, symbolism, and metaphor with emotion and tension to make characters feel real and an impossible story believable (Maass, 2009). Maass, D. (2009). The fire in the fiction: Passion, purpose, and techniques to make your novel great. Cincinnati, OH: Writers Digest Books.
