Reading with Love: Reading of Life Narrative of a Mother of a Child with Cerebral Palsy
Mercieca, Daniela; Mercieca, Duncan P.
Ethics and Education, v9 n3 p264-275 2014
This paper draws upon Deleuze and Guattari's ideas to suggest a different kind of reading of a narrative of a mother of a child with severe disability, and thus a different kind of ethical response to them. This reading gives readers the possibility of opening up experiences of parents and children with disability, rather than compartmentalising such stories. The reader "becomes," is transformed, through reading these narratives and through engaging with the intensities which are recognised in the text, asking the question "Does it work for me?" This is what Gilles Deleuze calls "reading with love".
