Interpretation of Literature: Subjective, Objective or Both?
Sheppard, B. J.
English in Australia, 16, 39-46, May 71
Interpretive remarks have both a subjective element and an objective element: subjective in the sense that an intelligent and full understanding of a work of literature may depend upon the reader having a certain background experience and knowledge; objective in the sense that, to be valid, an interpretation must have an objective basis in the text of the work in question.
