Before Reading: Narrative Conventions and the Politics of Interpretation

Copertina anteriore
Ohio State University Press, 1998 - 249 pagine
How does what we know shape the ways we read? Starting from the premise that any productive theory of narrative must take into account the presuppositions the reader brings to the text, Before Reading explores how our prior knowledge of literary conventions influences the processes of interpretation and evaluation. Available again with a new introduction by James Phelan.
