Critical Reading of 'The Road from Colonus' in the Light of Reader-Response Criticism
AbstractThis article is fully devoted to the critical reading of the short story written by E. M. Forster in the light of the Reader-Response Criticism. This critical reading approach is reader-centred and EFL setting-friendly, because the reader as the learner of L2, namely English, can find ample opportunity to improve his/her language skills while s/he develops literary competence and intellectual performance by simply following the steps proposed by the approach concerned. At the end of the reading process the reader will also be able to see how the text solely existing on the page(s) turns into a work of art once it goes through the mind and heart of the reader
