JAUSS RECEPTION THEORY PDF

One of the foremost figures of reception theory, Hans Robert Jauss , studied at the University of Heidelberg with the hermeneutic philosopher Hans Georg Gadamer. The factor of the audience or listener or reader, he urges, is largely neglected in these approaches. As such, literature is not an object or a thing but an event and it can exert a continued effect only if readers continue to respond to it. The responses of individual readers, he argues, do not occur in a vacuum but are situated within a horizon of expectations a framework of assumptions that can be objectified. The new text evokes for the reader listener the horizon of expectations and rules familiar from earlier texts, which are then varied, corrected, altered, or even just reproduced.

Such a work demands no horizonal change, but fulfills previous established norms and expectations, satisfies the prevalent norms of taste, and confirms familiar sentiments TAR, However, this distance can disappear for later readers, as the work initiates an alternative horizon, and as it becomes increasingly understood and its value recognized. Some new works only gradually develop an audience for themselves. On the contrary, as Gadamer points out, understanding can never occur outside of history: we do not have access to the original horizon of a work because this horizon is already enveloped within the present horizon.
