The Death of the Author Notes: Brian Bobb

This is what I wrote in my notebook while reading:

"The death of the author creates freedom for the reader to interpret the text. The reader can recreate the text through connecting to int's meaning as they appear in different contexts."

"In certain cultures, the "author" is a product of culture, a convention; a reflection of capitalists society concerned with ownership and the prestige off the individual."

"It is not the author, but language that speaks."

"writing- the destruction of every voice, every point of origin. the author dies in the moment of writing"

"The author is never more than the instance writing: the "I" in a text is a single instance of saying "I", it denotes a subject rather than an individual, a person."

Writing transcends to the reader on how it it is perceived to them through context. Thus a reader is born with the death of an author.
