Title: Literarkritik und Leserrezeption
Subtitle: Ein Beitrag zur Methodendiskussion am Beispiel Joh 3,22-4,3
Author(s): NICKLAS, Tobias
Volume: 83 Issue: 2 Date: 2002
Classical literary criticism combines the synchronic study of a text’s structure for a possible breakdown in logic with conclusions regarding the diachronic-oriented inquiry into possible literary pre-stages of the text under examination. Without questioning the importance of this method, the present study wants to point out a further connection, which can arise from the recognition of ruptures in the logic of a text. Tensions, breaks, contradictions, doublings, etc. can also be regarded as 'disturbances in the reading event' and as such have repercussions for the reception on the text by the 'implicit reader'. This thesis is put into concrete terms on the basis of John 3,22-4,3 and is explained by means of other examples.
