Creative Responses to Literature: Imagining, Personalizing, Clarifying, Valuing; Guide to the Film Series. Protokollon II.
Lid, R. W.; Handler, Philip
The Protocol Materials in English (PME) project was set up to study literature and the teaching of literature in an effort to determine whether it is possible to discover hierarchies of concepts and to create materials to illustrate those concepts. This guide--second in a series--focuses on the acts that the reader performs in responding to a given literary piece. These acts can be more or less creative according to the extent to which the reader participates in the reading experience by recreating the world of the book, investing the self, derive meaning, and finding worth in the text. Put more formally, these acts can be identified as imagining, personalizing, clarifying, and valuing. This book is designed to complement four films, each of which explicates a theory about the creativity of reader response. The guide ends with some questions and answers about the PME film series for studying literature. (RB)
