“It feels like you’re interpreting the text depending on where you are in your life”. A study on the transactional reader-text relation (English)
Abstract [en]

This master’s thesis investigates the contextualized relation between a reader and a text, in a non classroom-oriented situation. I am studying the questions of (a) in what way a persons education, personal experiences and opinions, and (b) how the text; its design (language) and message, holds a function in – and forms – the reader-text relation. At the same time I am testing the theoretical framework of Louise Rosenblatt, for the purpose of finding an adequate method to analyze this relation. Using semi-structured interviews, six participants have read and answered questions about two texts. Exploring the theories of Rosenblatt, the participants take part in an ‘experiment’ where their communicated text transactions are the crucial foundation of the study. The analysis of their statements has been carried out with the help of Rosenblatts’ efferent-aesthetic continuum, together with a field model of Berntsen and Larsen, which survey different types of text interaction. The result of the study shows, that we are able to conduct an analysis on the reader-text relation, with the help of the framework that the above-mentioned tools offer. The methods help us to identify and understand both individual and contextualized – as well as more general – elements in the reader-text relation. In this way, we can learn how the relation takes form and develops during the transaction. This comes to help in the larger issue of understanding reading as a phenomenon. Also, the study shows that Rosenblatt's theoretical framework serves a study conducted outside of a classroom-related context well.
