Abstract : Moby Dick's "III Presence" in Readerly Reception
The present paper attempts to address the question of the reader's reception of the so-called "difficult" literature. The author focuses particularly on the problems arising in the course of reception of Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Due to its unconventionality, Melville's novel does not readily lend itself to simple "labelling" in terms of literary history. The complexity of the text and the multiplicity of its possible interpretations place Moby Dick among the world's most original, and at the same time most demanding literary masterpieces. Because of its non-standard poetics and structure, and due to the inter- and extratextual implications, an unprepared reader is bound to face serious problems with the interpretation of the text. The reader's frustration, however, may become a good starting point for his departure from "fossilized" interpretational patterns towards active reading, and thus literary maturity. The novel's uniqueness makes it a perfect aid in the process of shaping the reader's nonconformity in literary thinking.
