"But the answer suggested by my little story is that the utterance has two literal meanings..." (306) This quote led me to my artistic piece, which illustrates two physically different students asking the same question. I used different fonts to show their questioning to show the difference in the same question based on the person and their context.
Reader response theory is very much about meanings of texts being created by the reader and how they interpret the text. Fish explains this using the question asked by a student and her intended meaning and how it differed from the initial understanding of her professor. I like the idea of reader response because while the author is still not present or relevant, readers have more freedom to contextualize what they read or in the case of this article, say. How many ways can a text be interpreted correctly? Is there ever a wrong interpretation?
