I am debating whether or not to cancel, so have a couple questions.
First, I am unsure whether or not I finished all 28 questions. I thought I remember filling in 27 questions. So, what I want to ask is this: does anyone remember the last question (and answer) to the last question, question 28 in reading comp? It was for the passage about intellectual freedom at universities, and I'm hoping some posts will let me know if I got to and answered that question.
Second, I just want to make sure if I indeed got that question wrong/right re: reader-response criticism that asked which best characterizes the spirit of reader-response crit. The two choices were between a folk artist who incorporates long-held tropes (or meanings or something) from folk art in his work and between a director who shows a play of shakespeare in japan. There was an earlier posting about this, and people seemed to agree on the latter choice. however: i guess i just don't see why; doesn't reader-response criticism use the history of a work's reception in order to decide upon a work's cultural context and therefore meaning or significance? in other words, what relevance would showing a work in an altogether different setting have upon the history of a work's reception? maybe i'm wrong though, and i have a feeling i may be. just let me know what you all think.
