PLEASE USE MY INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH AND THESIS PROVIDED:

The most important aspect when reading a literary work is how the reader dissects the story and the meaning which comes with it. This is known as the reader response theory, enabling the reader to find the real meaning of the story on their own. The canvas which the author has left for the audience can be painted in multiple ways, creating diversity in the literary work. The reader response theory is a superior technique to be used by an author, as it allows for diversity in meaning, reader creativity, and freedom of thought giving the text importance.

REQUIREMENTS:

4 to 6 PAGES

4 Reliable outside sources

MLA Format

Your essay must contain:

 a clear argument – you must take a clear and firm stand on the question

of which literary theory you agree with, Reader Response or Authorial

Intent.

 Support for that argument by means of evidence.

 A Counter-Argument – Make a case for the opposing opinion.

 A Rebuttal to the counter-argument – Why the opposing opinion is weak.

Your thesis statement will answer the question:

Which of the opposing theories, Reader Response or Authorial Intent, is

correct?

Authorial intent Theory:

A position that argues that the creator of a text possesses a privileged

understanding of its meaning and that consequently any interpretation that

contradicts this understanding must defer to the author’s intentions.

Reader Response Theory

A view of literary works that argues that meaning does not reside in the

text, but in the mind of the reader. The text functions only as a canvas onto

which the reader projects whatever his or her reactions may be. The text is

a cause of different thoughts, but does not provide a reason for one

interpretation rather than another.

Begin by researching both theories.
