Mitchell and some feminists, for that matter, with respect to women’s liberation (p. 18). All twelve show preoccupation with health, the power of positive thinking, redemption through naiveté, nostalgia, a fascination with the future, and progress through recapitulation. Louise Rosenblatt is generally credited with formally introducing the idea that the reader's experience and interaction with the text creates the true meaning.
