What is the role of the reader and the role of the text?
“The reader and text become partners in producing meaning and in the interpretive process. The text acts as a stimulus for eliciting ideas from the reader and at the same time shapes the reader's experiences… The text is defined as an event, which takes place and is created during reading and interpretation” (Imtiaz).
