"In this provocative work, Macherey puts the focus as much on the reader as the writer, stating that the very act of reading is a form of production in its own right, generating interpretation and meanings which are beyond the control of the author." "Part of the birth of a whole new branch of post-structuralist theory, Macherey's work also influenced a new generation of critics - among them Jacques Derrida, his contemporary, and Terry Eagleton. His ideas have also led some observers to claim that he announced 'the death of the author' fully two years before Roland Barthes' famous essay."--Jacket." ;
