Abstract
The article discusses the study of a narrative interest as cultural negotiation. It explores the specific description of the negotiation, which combines the impact of the text with the activity and the cultural embeddedness of the reader. The author states that a theory of narrative interest must take into account the idea of intrinsically interesting textual properties. He claims that narrative texts can induce narrative interest and can force readers to consider it to be interesting. In addition, the author thinks that narrative interest arises as a result of a continuous mutual adjustment or negotiation between the two domains.
