Much literary criticism focuses on literary producers and their products, but an important part of such work considers the end-user, the reader. It asks such questions as: how far can the author condition the response of the reader, and how much does the reader create the meaning of a text? Dr Bennett's collection includes important essays from such writers and critics as Wolfgang Iser, Mary Jacobus, Roger Chartier, Michel de Certeau, Shoshana Felman, Maurice Blanchot, Paul de Man and Yves Bonnefoy. It looks in turn at deconstructionist, feminist, new historicist and psychoanalytical response to the school. The book then considers the act of reading itself, discussing such issues as the uniqueness of any reading and the difficulties involved in its analysis.

1. Eclectic, curious, vicarious
2. I posted my beautiful cigar tree in bloom. I love to read in view of this tree.
3. Is it wrong that my first thought was of an evil stepmother? (Not mine, a family member)
4. Anyone else?
1. No zoo in my city. My favorite zoos are The Bronx Zoo and Audubon in New Orleans. I love all of them, but big cats might be my favorites. I have not touched any wild.
Thanks @Avanders ! #wondrouswednesday #thursdaysurvey

@LibrarianRyan I‘m signed up, more because I am interested in some of the prompts- but I will attempt the challenge. I‘m considering getting and donating the books as I finish them to the free library I run at the clinic where I work, so that could be fun too.

LibrarianRyan Yeah ⭐️🤓👍 3w

I haven‘t done a #readingchallenge in a very long time, if ever, but I think my teenage daughter and I are going to tackle the one just posted by #modernmrsdarcy. Is anyone else looking at this one? I‘ve almost got a tentative plan mapped out. It‘s exciting! I‘ve never really planned my reading before except for book club.

TheSpineView Yes, I signed up but have not printed it out or got my thoughts organized. Plan to do that over the holidays. 😊 6mo
jenniferajanes @TheSpineView Yay! Is there a hashtag we can use here on Litsy to track each other‘s progress? I think the official one is #mmdchallenge??? 6mo
TheSpineView @jenniferajanes Other Littens use both #mmdchallenge and #modernmrsdarcy so either will work. I will probably use both in my posts. 6mo

jenniferajanes @TheSpineView Thanks! I will use both too. 6mo

We gave each of the ladies a mug for the #24in48 Retreat. It was so much fun and hard to keep reading instead of talking about books. Everyone wants to plan another one too! So grateful and blessed to HQ for planning the readathon and all that goes into it 😍😊😎📚.

Reviewsbylola Such a fun idea! 11mo

This is as far as I‘m getting today. I‘m hoping I get around 12 hrs clocked again, but as tomorrow is busier than today I might struggle. Fingers crossed! And one day maybe I will reach 24 😋

1. Sitting in my reading chair thinking once again that l need to buy a more comfortable one...
2. The Poppy War. And l need to be quicker, the #NetGalley file is about to expire
3. I don't really know. Some book l want to read as research for my own writing. Some are prompted by readalong. The rest, l suppose l'm quite the mood reader

#TuesdayTidBits @SilversReviews

SilversReviews Thanks for playing. Good comments about how you choose...thanks. I was on my porch recliner and it fell backwasrds...thankfully it hit the wall and I didn‘t topple totally backwards. I guess the arms were not locked...it is a summer recliner. 11mo

1. Where I stop reading, is where I stop. ☺📖🔖
2. I am an equal opportunity reader. I will read anytime I have a free moment.📚
3. A little noise is OK; though I prefer quiet.
