The Expectant Reader in Theory and Practice.
Fowler, Lois Josephs; McCormick, Kathleen
English Journal, v75 n6 p45-47 Oct 1986
Offers a method of using reader response theory that emphasizes the expectations about a text and how those expectations are fulfilled or deflated. Specifically, students read traditional fables, fairy tales, and parables, and compare them to contemporary works such as Kafka's "Metamorphosis" and Marquez's "The Very Old Man With Enormous Wings."
