Value and Structure: The Seamless Web of Literary Excellence.
Kleiner, Elaine L.
The perception of literary value is a function of the reader's interpretation of literary structures in relation to other creative works in that reader's repertoire and of the "deep structure" of literary imagination within the individual unconscious. This critical model suggests, therefore, that unique experiences with literature and with life determine the framework from which readers make assessments of literary worth. (KS)
