Elias Canetti’s 1935 novel Auto-da-Fe has traditionally been difficult to interpret and the author’s intentions in writing it have remained unclear. 

Science Meets Literature argues that Auto-da-Fé is a novel about human nature that illustrates the workings of the human mind and some universal aspects of human behaviour and human social relationships.
