Narcissus in the Classroom: The Pedagogical Implications of Subjective Criticism.
Gauthier, Michael G.
Journal of Education, v164 n3 p238-55 Sum 1982
Subjectivist literary criticism, which emphasizes readers' emotional responses to texts and adopts psychoanalytic classroom techniques, renders questionable such aspects of literature teaching as goals, evaluation, and teacher preparation. Literature teachers must abandon the scientific orientation of objectivism and subjectivism in favor if an aesthetic framework for interpreting and teaching literature. (Author/MJL)
