Seo-Young Chu‘s book, “Do Metaphors Dream of Literal Sleep?” argues that all representational work is science fiction. Realism is actually just a low-intensity variety of science fiction, and what most people call science fiction is a high-intensity variety of realism. Is Chu correct? What are the things, then, that distinguish SF aesthetics from non-SF?  Explore SF aesthetics vs. non-SF, and the differences, if any, between poetry and prose.
