Hi!

Could anyone tell me what professor Ramón Saldívar meant with the expression "posture of mind and heart"? Is it some sort of collective posture or something of the kind? Thanks!

"The magical realist novel presented the world in such a way as to entice readers to react with wonder at the marvelous nature of American reality. The postrace novel effects a transition away from wonder toward fantasy as a posture of mind and heart." (Ramón Saldívar, Historical Fantasy, Speculative Realism, and Postrace Aesthetics in Contemporary American Fiction. American Literary History, p. 594)

Thanks!
