a friend with whom one has chosen to spend one's time

“A literary work ... is, during the time one reads it, a friend with whom one has chosen to spend one's time. The question now is, what does this friendship do to my mind? What does this new friend ask me to notice, to desire, to care about? 

How does he or she invite me to view my fellow human beings?”
