What fits more into a meaning-centered view of English teaching than a view of reading that allows readers to create their own meanings from books? Louise Rosenblatt does not believe that the act of reading is relative. There is a text and there is an author’s point of view of this text. Whatever information the reader has to help clarify and make sense of a text is useful. The interpretation, according to Rosenblatt, has to be warranted and reasonable. However, the major supplier of meaning for every text is the reader, and every reader has the right to her or his interpretation as long as the text supports it.
