Hermeneutic Desire and Critical Rewriting

Narrative Interpretation in the Wake of Poststructuralism

  • Marcel Cornis-Pope

About this book


Starting from a comprehensive examination of current poststructuralist and sociosemiotic theories of narrative, this book formulates an interactive model of literary interpretation and pedagogy emphasising process, critical self-awareness and strategies of rereading/rewriting. A literary pedagogy premised on the concept of 'rewriting', the author argues, will enable readers to experience the process of narrative and critical construction creatively.
