Dijk, A.C. van
MetadataShow full item record
In general this thesis investigates in what way the political and the poetical coexist in interpretations of literature and how they relate to each other. This means the focus is on the reading and the reading politically or poetically specifically and not on writing or writing political or on the socio-political implications of the text itself. The way to interpret literature avoiding the pitfalls of a too political reading can be the reading inside-out and starting with the text itself instead of outside-in which starts with the socio-political context.
