Readers' Awareness of Author

by Timothy Shanahan - 1998

Rhetorical issues will be the focus of this chapter. Instead of the more typical focus—how writers think about readers—I will consider how readers come to think of authors and what difference such thinking makes in their understandings of the texts they read. I will examine (1) the place of the author in literary theory, (2) the role of the author in disciplinary discourse, (3) features of text that make the author more visible, and (4) the concept of author in children's literacy development.
