Hello
I can't understand what's the meaning of this sentence (Bold Part):


For one thing, we observe fictional people in situations that are always significant and that serve to illuminate their characters in a way that our daily routine exposure to real people seldom does.

Hello.

I can't understand (delete what's) the meaning of this sentence (bold part):

Try removing the adjectives "daily routine" and rereading it without them. Does that help?

Sorry.

I [STRIKE]see[/STRIKE] saw this in a magazine.
What is the name of the magazine, and what is the subject of the article in which you read the sentence?
