    The nodal point of the essay is the idea of literature as a verbal media expected to "stimulate our imagination" followed by an attempt to assess general conditions of narrative representation that may result in mental imagery. Three major hypotheses are confronted (while special attention is paid to the image of fictional landscape): a saturated representation gives the reader enough cues to construct the physical appearance of the fictional world; its lacunary representation results in reader's "filling in" the gaps; the extent of mental images is controlled mainly by literary conventions. The essay suggest a fourth alternative, illuminating it by Tolkien's The Hobbit and claiming that the imaginative power of the narrative consists in the experiential mode of representation, closely interconnected with the particular preconditions and capabilities of the characters. As a result, the processes of mental imagery involve also experiential analogies.
