Agency and the Death of the Author: A Partial Defense of Modernism.
Trimbur, John
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v20 n2 p283-98 Spr 2000
Claims the story of the death of the author carries with it an edifying mission: (1) it gets rid of the mystifying figure of the author; and (2) it points the way toward rehabilitating the notion of agency. Supports Walter Benjamin's position that argues a need to socialize the author as producer. (NH)
