QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY!
Reader-response criticism-a general term for those kinds of modern criticism and literary theory that focus on the responses of readers to literary works, rather than on the works themselves considered as self‐contained entities.
Reader-response theory recognizes the reader as an active agent who imparts "real existence" to the work and completes its meaning through interpretation. Reader-response criticism argues that literature should be viewed as a performing art in which each reader creates his or her own, possibly unique, text-related performance.
Formalism-a school of literary criticism and literary theory having mainly to do with structural purposes of a particular text. In literary theory formalism refers to critical approaches that analyze, interpret, or evaluate the inherent features of a text.
