Suspension of Disbelief

This phrase comes from Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who wrote in his essay “Biographia Literaria”, “My endeavors should be directed to persons and characters supernatural, or at least romantic; yet to transfer from our inward nature a human interest and a semblance of truth sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment which constitutes poetic faith.”
