Place and Space (Parameters) Parameters

A "rich" text incorporates placeholders and variables called words. Within the context of a work of literature, a word can have both a literal meaning and a figurative meaning. The author writes with this duality of text in mind; skilled readers realize this duality. In addition, readers bring their own interpretations to a work, based largely upon personal experience in reference to reading and also to other aspects of life. These interpretations are additions to the work and enter the work at the work's parameters-- those words which trigger variable memories, emotions, personal meaning. These additions have an affect on a person's total reading and perception of a particular work.
