Abstract

Readers often have quite different experiences of literary texts. In this article, I suggest that readers’ life experiences affect the knowledge they bring to bear on narrative experiences as well as the responses they encode as those experiences unfold. I use an episode from the novel Transmission to illustrate potential individual differences in a literary context.
