Holland, Norman N.
This book examines how personality, in the sense of character development and identity, affects the way in which we read and interpret information. The first chapter deals with the question of who reads what and how they read it. The second chapter uses "A Rose for Emily" as an example of what people read. The third chapter discusses the conditions under which five particular readers read some short stories. The fourth chapter discusses four principles of literary experience: style seeks itself, defenses must be matched, fantasy projects fantasies, and chapter transforms characteristically. Chapter 6 deals with the evidence gathered in an experiment with five readers. Chapter 7 deals with the terms of subjectivity. Chapter 8 is concerned with the transformation from subjectivity to collectivity. Chapter 9 discusses the cognitive processes. (TS)
