Ankeny (English, George Fox U., Newberg, OR) analyzes how the 19th- century Scottish writer understood the relationship between reader, author, and text. Focusing on MacDonald's realistic novels, in which libraries and reading frequently carry significance, Ankeny finds that the intensity of the author's interest in the workings of text and the sophistication of his understanding form a basis for a more routine inclusion of MacDonald in the ranks of Victorian men and women of letters.
