Literature as Dialogue: Invitations offered and negotiated - Dialogue Studies 22 (Hardback)Roger D. Sell (editor)
- We can order this from the publisher
Part I of the book poses the question: How, in offering their invitation, have writers respected their audiences' human autonomy? This is the province of what Abo scholars call "communicational criticism". Part II asks how an audience negotiating a literary invitation can be encouraged to respect the human autonomy of the writer who has offered it. In Abo parlance, such encouragement is the task of "mediating criticism". These two modes of criticism naturally complement each other, and in their shared concern for communicational ethics ultimately seek to further a post-postmodern world that would be global without being hegemonic.
