The poem is a structure of signifiers which absorbs and reconstitutes the signified.More Jonathan Culler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The meaning of a work is not what the author had in mind at some point, nor is it simply a property of the text or the experience of a reader. Meaning is an inescapable notion because it is not something simple or simply determined. It is simultaneously an experience of a subject and a property of a text. It is both what we understand and what in the text we try to understand.More Jonathan Culler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
