At its most basic level, reader response criticism considers readers' reactions to literature as vital to interpreting the meaning of the text. However, reader-response criticism can take a number of different approaches. A critic deploying reader-response theory can use a psychoanalytic lens, a feminists lens, or even a structuralist lens. What these different lenses have in common when using a reader response approach is they maintain "...that what a text is cannot be separated from what it does" (Tyson 154).
Tyson explains that "...reader-response theorists share two beliefs: 1) that the role of the reader cannot be omitted from our understanding of literature and 2) that readers do not passively consume the meaning presented to them by an objective literary text; rather they actively make the meaning they find in literature" (154). In this way, reader-response theory shares common ground with some of the deconstructionists discussed in the Post-structural area when they talk about "the death of the author," or her displacement as the (author)itarian figure in the text.
In this example, since the reader does not know the author of the article, an abbreviated title of the article appears in the parenthetical citation which corresponds to the full name of the article which appears first at the left-hand margin of its respective entry in the Works Cited. Thus, the writer includes the title in quotation marks as the signal phrase in the parenthetical citation in order to lead the reader directly to the source on the Works Cited page. The Works Cited entry appears as follows:
We'll learn how to make a Works Cited page in a bit, but right now it's important to know that parenthetical citations and Works Cited pages allow readers to know which sources you consulted in writing your essay, so that they can either verify your interpretation of the sources or use them in their own scholarly work.
The first idea may be identified as the executive aspect of Reader Response Criticism because it analyzes the act of reading, while the second idea is the epistemological aspect of the theory because it circumscribes the knowledge we can acquire about a text to the merely relative....
QUOTATIONS SHOULD NEVER BE SUBSTITUTES FOR YOUR OWN IDEAS. They support your argument by providing evidence.
Remember, the importance of quotations is not self-evident. Explain why you are introducing them and what conclusion a reader should draw from them.
Read this carefully please. About the Reader Response: The first part of the response is an analysis in which you answer the question, while the last paragraph is a confrontation, a personalized statement of meaning.
Schwarz explains that subjective reader-response critics would respond to a question such as this by answering that each reader uses the literary work to symbolize his or her own life and, therefore, each response is unique to the individual reader....
5- No more than 20-25% of your reader response should include direct quotes and in- text citations. Using more than 20-25% shows too great a reliance on someone else’s ideas, rather than your own.
4- Remember to provide textual support and in-text citations to support what you say. Without supporting evidence and in-text citations, the assignment is an opinion – not an argument. The assignment is incomplete, and no grade greater than “50” will be recorded.
The confrontation does not mean that you are “meeting” the author head on to argue, although you may. The conclusion, instead, is subjective; it’s discussing how you relate to anything in the literature; it’s your way of airing what you like, dislike, or what it means to your everyday life. (This is a response not a summary).
PLEASE READ THE REQUIREMENTS CAREFULLY. If it is not clear then email me.
This is not an essay it is reader response. I placed my order as it is an essay but that is because you don’t have a reader response choice on the website.
Writer must read the attachment carefully and write AN ANALYSIS not a SUMMARY.
There is no need for any outside sources because it is an analysis. And I will upload the needed files for writing the reader response.

NOTE: This Reader Response is about the readings:
This week’s reader response is about the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire. The play is divided into ten scenes. (There are no acts.) It is posted full-text in the attachments.
One could infer from this quote that some writers write not just for the enjoyment derived from it, but rather out of a feeling of obligation to let readers hear what they may have to say.
Once the essay begins, Hines delves straight into Chavez Ravine, the architects behind the housing project there, and the socialist controversy that doomed the project, provoking a number of responses from me ranging from frustration to sympathy....
