Tag-teaming Lit. Critics--oh my!

Dock, '''But One Expects That': Charlotte Perkins Gilman's 'The Yellow Wallpaper' and the Shifting Light of Scholarship'' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)
"Once battles for recognition have been won, however, critical notions that have served as rallying cries need to shift." (480).

Each writer has a cause or motive they are rallying for and the authors show the various reviews that depict the intention of the author vs. the reactions from the audience. The norms shaped reactions and meanings were twisted and fluffed, but in the end, it's all up to the author.
