"No author, who comprehends the just restrictions of decorum and good-breeding, would presume to believe all: the truest value that you pays to the reader's understanding, is to halve this matter amicably, and leave him something to assume in his convert as well as yourself" (Stern 9). Reader-response criticism sorts the overall basis of the thesis, and Iser's theories are what it specifically depends on. This criticism would in many respects look like acting as a response to formalism, which concentrates on the materiality of the written text to the exclusion of the rest. Besides, it aims to react to New Critical bias against reader (Davis and Womak 53). Hence, its main concentration is on the work of reading itself, especially on the ways that reader respond to literary text. In fact, the target is to reestablish the neglected angle of the literary triangle reader-text- author.
