Conversation with a Text.
Cowan, Michael A.
College Teaching, v42 n2 p66-71 Spr 1994
A theory of literary interpretation that treats the reader's interaction with text as a form of conversation is discussed, and related teaching techniques are described. The approach uses four steps: (1) articulating initial responses; (2) pursuing deeper understanding of the text; (3) interaction with the text; and (4) identifying possibilities for the future. (MSE)
