Mediation Cycles In Non-Traditional Literature
From the Intro :
The core question underlying this investigation is twofold, and could be formulated as follows : how does reading a text ultimately change it, and how different is this change, if said text pertains to non-traditional literature? This formulation implies an active role on both the reader and the text’s part, and contrasts assertions on the nature of different types of literature. I will also put forth and analyse the process which produces new meaning as reader and author come together to create singular matter: the resulting product of these two agents collapsing, the constructed ‘third space’. This thought will be tackled further in the essay while authorship, control and mediation will also be addressed within the same context.
