Reclaiming the Active Mind.
Berthoff, Ann E.
College English, v61 n6 p671-80 Jul 1999
Considers the significance of the disappearance of close reading. Looks briefly at the devastation wrought by certain "gangster theories"--indeterminacy, misreading, and the idea that people all tell stories (all knowledge is determined by the situation in which people find themselves). Suggests that close reading and close observation offer occasions to enjoy a pleasure in the exercise of mind. (SC)
