The Reader and the Reading Experience

Let the Reader Understand: Reader-response Criticism and the Gospel of Mark,
Robert M. Fowler, Trinity Press 1996, page 30

To the critic, the reader often appears to serve blindly texts he does not know and cannot understand; to the reader, the critic often assumes the arrogant role of master and judge over texts to which he is inferior. Must not some middle ground exist?

That puts us all in our place!
