This book expands my literary vision in terms of reader-oriented perspective, not specifically broad impressionistic of 'reader response' criticism. The book though foregrounds an idealized reader as a distinction of an implied reader and offers how to achieve 'new reading' by cognitive process. How can we reach our interpretive controversies is an intriguing topic nowadays and this book might disclose how reader's 'natural' response is all about.
