The Act of Reading

A Theory of Aesthetic Response

About the Author

Wolfgang Iser, who has taught at leading universities in the United States and Europe, is currently professor of English and comparative literature at the University of Constance.

Reviews

"A splendid theoretical companion to Iser's The Implied Reader. The earlier book drew much attention for its reader-centered practical criticism of narrative fiction from Bunyan on. The new volume explains Iser's phenomenological technique . . . This book belongs in every serious, up-to-date literature collection."—Library Journal.
