Help! I need a reference for a paper I am about to submit and can't find one because the concept is one I've been aware of for a decade and have no idea where it comes from!
Can anyone give me a reference for the literary theory concept of the 'Ideal Reader' NOT the 'implied reader' (I have heaps for that!)? I think there's a subtle difference between the two and that's all I'm wanting to say but without a reference I'll be in big trouble!! Alas none of my literary theory books seem to mention it. Pah!
Thank you kind people.
