Lecture 4: Reader Response Wordle Summary: Rachael Folds
I feel that the wordle image is a reasonably true visual representation of the key components of the text, from my perspective. It is all in the perception of the reader. I do agree with Reader Response theory in that we make assumptions based on our individual experiences/class/knowledge, however do not feel that the theory needs to be as laboured and analysed.
I too believe that perhaps the reason that it is not discussed/taught in such lengths is that it is common sense. After all - it is a theory!!
