Hermeneutic Desire and Critical Rewriting: Narrative Interpretation in the Wake of Poststructuralism
Starting from a comprehensive examination of current post-structuralist and socio-semiotic theories of narrative, this book formulates an interactive model of literary interpretation and pedagogy emphasizing process, critical self-awareness and strategies of re-reading/re-writing. A literary pedagogy premised on the concept of rewriting, the author argues, will enable readers to experience the process of narrative and critical construction creatively.
