Title: Author Representations in Literary Reading
Written By: Eefje Claassen
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/lal.11
Series Title: Linguistic Approaches to Literature 11
Description:

"Author Representations in Literary Reading" investigates the role of the author
in the mind of the reader. It is the first book-length empirical study on generated
author inferences by readers of literature. It bridges the gap between theories
which hold that the author is irrelevant and those that give him prominence. By
combining insights and methods from both cognitive psychology and literary
theory, this book contributes to a better understanding of how readers process
literary texts and what role their assumptions about an author play. A series of
experiments demonstrate that readers generate author inferences during the
process of reading, which they use to create an image of the text’s author. The
findings suggest that interpretations about the author play a pivotal role in the
literary reading process. This book is relevant to scholars and students in all
areas of the cognitive sciences, including literary studies and psychology.
