About the book:

This important new work brings a fresh and carefully elaborated theory of the literary work of art to the current re­discovery of the reader—that of the concept, based on the transactional point of view, of the two-way process involved in eliciting a literary work of art from a text. Dr. Rosenblatt draws on her long experience as a scholar and teacher of English and Comparative Lit­erature. Amply illustrating her theo­retical points, she provides contrasting interpretations of a number of varied texts, discusses other critical ap­proaches, and makes reference to recent philosophical developments.
