In decades, literary critics have raised questions about how to interpret authorial intention and how to understand the reader’s participation in the construction of the text’s meaning. How connected are writing and reading? Why do readers respond differently to the literary signs? Does the reading depend on the reader’s own experiences, individual feelings, personal associations or on conventions of reading, interpretive communities and cultural conditions? This volume brings together narrative theory, fictionality theory and speech act theory to address such questions of expectations and intentionality in relation to narrative and fiction.
