The Literary Transaction: Evocation and Response.
Rosenblatt, Louise M.
Theory into Practice, v21 n4 p268-77 Fall 1982
Reading is a transactional interplay between the reader and the text. Reading for cognitive understanding and for aesthetic enjoyment are very different processes. Schools tend to emphasize the first and neglect the second, although children first experience language in an aesthetic way. Reading instruction should emphasize both types of reading. (PP)
