The first half of the chapter explores various ways in which fictive forms such as the novel, poetry, and art can all lay claim to truth, and indeed at a level sometimes more profound than the nearest factual equivalent. The eight criteria for legitimate development or otherwise that have been employed through the two volumes are then briefly summarized.

Keywords: art; criteria; fiction; novel; Pilate; truth
