  9. "the death of the author" has some problems.

    i have a few problems with barthes’ magnum opus, but i’ll get into them another time, if anyone is ever interested.

    i think the most fundamental flaw with “the death of the author” is this:

    to treat stories as the personal play-ground of a critic’s creative self-expression—like writing dadaist poetry with scraps of someone else’s mind—is probably fun, but ultimately says nothing about the work, or about the world—only about the critic’s own head.

    arguing that the auther is merely some kind of conduit for a vast societal unconscious and does not actually have anything to do with the production of the work is a wonderful thought experiment but makes communication meaningless.

    critique is rendered pointless by DOTA because critique relies on authors of critiques exchanging ideas with their readers. and the critic cannot do that, because the AUTHOR OF THE CRITIQUE IS NOW ALSO DEAD, rendering their text subject to the same intellectual jungle law.

    for the critique to have a reason for existing, outside of contributing one more indistinct subconscious particle to the memetic soup DOTAers claim is the only medium we live in, you must accept that words have context and meaning outside of stories, and can express concepts new or unfamiliar to the reader.

    if you can admit this, then you must admit that stories are subject to the same properties; that they possess the ability to frame concepts which you are not aware of or familiar with.

    if you try to separate the ‘meaning’ of the words from the author’s ‘intent’ and claim that there is absolutely no objective intent or knowledge, which was embedded in the work BY the author and exists aside from your interpretation, you are robbing yourself of the knowledge of any experience which you have not personally undergone. which is to say that if you are the only filter through which fiction can be read, you can only ever see what you have the existing knowledge to perceive.

    meaning and intent were never different. After all, stories are recombinant critiques of the world the author sees around them every day.

    EDIT: also when DOTAers claim that culture and the state of society has nothing to do with the critic’s interpretation of a written work, they preclude inferring anything about the society and culture the work is from. not content with ignoring intended meaning, the critic cannot even parse UNINTENDED meaning from the work now, because there is no gap between the author’s intended meaning and what the author actually said for the critic to extrapolate from.
