The Meanings That Never End...They Just Go On & On My Friend....

Feldstein, ''Reader, Text, and Ambiguous Referentiality in 'The Yellow Wallpaper''' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

After reading yet another way to look at "The Yellow Wallpaper" I am exhausted! Yes, Feldstein allowed to reader to look at "The Yellow Wallpaper" in a different light, and i appreciated it but....

I wonder how all of these theories and different critcisms are supposed to make me felel?

I mean, if I seriously try to apply each criticism to one text, I would drive myself crazy and I don't really think any story or novel that I read would have any closure...

So then I thought....

Maybe this book is supposed to make me knowledgeable of the different criticisms and pick the theory that makes the most sense to me and I liked that idea...so I'm sticking to it...

I think that's the beauty of learning all of these different criticisms. It gives us the option to pick which one fits our reading of each text individually, thus giving us the opportunity to better criticize a text.
