The art of immersion

Among the most persuasive of Rose’s arguments is that the shift of stories into new forms – and initial public reluctance to embrace them – has ample historical precedent. He takes the reader back to the early days of the novel with Robinson Crusoe and serial publishing with Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers. Like transmedia today, he points out, these storytelling techniques were initially greeted with scepticism and criticised for providing a dangerous new level of immersion in fictional worlds.
