The purpose of this book is to present to scholars, students and enthusiasts in the fields of literature and linguistics a way to study a text analytically. Reading is multi-faceted and shaped by contexts, participants, and technologies. The ways of reading tackled most enthusiastically in this book are interpretations which show active involvement of readers: Each literary or linguistic approach can be compared to a window through which we see, grapple, comprehend, personalize and internalize the text, hence the world.
Feryal Cubukcu and Leyla Harputlu are professors at Dokuz Eylül University in Izmir (Turkey). Their shared main interests are language teaching, psycholinguistics, applied linguistics, and critical reading.
