  • 5. + 2 major functions of the unique patterns of signs that constitutes the text:
  • 6. + Text: the printed signs in their capacity to serve as symbols Poem: what active readers make of their responses to the set of verbal symbols - refer to the whole category of aesthetic transactions between readers and texts
  • 7. +Post-Romantics: seeing behind the text, the figure of the author. -preoccupation with the bond casts aside the idea of reader’s creativity * once creative activity ended- what remains is a text. * bringing poem into being requires a reader if not the author himself. Critical Theory & practice: fail to recognize: -the readers’ dynamic, personal & unique activities * T.S. Elliot:“…a valid interpretation…must be at the same time an interpretation of my own feeling when I read it.”
