Identifying with "Emma": Some Problems for the Feminist Reader.
Moffat, Wendy
College English, v53 n1 p45-58 Jan 1991
Explores questions about the use of history in teaching literature and about the relation between academic reading (with its emphasis on form and the objectification of the reading process) and naive reading (which depends on a psychological identification with a character). Illustrates these issues through a discussion of a feminist reader's responses to Jane Austen's novel "Emma." (RS)
