Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 44,530. Language: English. Published: November 27, 2015. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Movements / Critical theory, Essay » Literature
In this project I ground my reading of reader-oriented criticism in a particular text, Rudy Wiebe’s The Mad Trapper. Positioning this novel as representative of the contradictory characteristics of all texts--”always already” open to multiple interpretations--I use these multiple readings both to examine and undermine The Mad Trapper and Reader Response/Reception theory.

This eloquent introduction to postmodernism explores how post-war British fiction reinvents and re-evaluates the literary conventions of Realism.
