Discussion: Authorial Intent VS Reader’s Interpretation

This was a really interesting post. For years I read tons of fanfiction (primarily Harry Potter, with a dash of Buffy and Supernatural.) I still do read some of it, but I’m steadily more picky on what I choose.

Anyways, the blogger explores a couple sides to common issues in authorial intent versus reader’s interpretation, and really makes you think. Not only that, but the comments on the post are insightful and contribute to the conversation!
