Here is the requirements for the paper. There must be direct references to the TEXTS and also some ideas should be involved. Not just their thoughts will result in a passing grade. Thanks in advance.
“In class this semester we have discussed three authors which represent three unique schools of thought on the place and role of the author in literature. John Crowe Ransom’s Criticism Inc, Mikhail Bakhtin’s two works, Discourse in the Novel and Rabelais and His World, and Roland Barthes’ Death of the Author run the continuum from giving the author a privileged and dynamic position in the creation of meaning and text or negating him entirely, e.g. once the text enters the public domain, the author has no influence over meaning drawn from the text by readers.
In your paper please explain the position of each author with direct reference to the text in question (nothing else will garner you a passing grade) and then argue which you feel is most convincing. By this I mean: where do you place the importance of the author in the creation of textual meaning?”
