Abstract

In examining how both reader and writer interpret the ‘new’ through their previous understandings this questions how we use those recognition. Do we reinforce the idea of the self & the familiar or do we challenge this familiarity and reconsider how we approach the ‘other’ in our reading and authorship as writers? In re positioning the other we can consider both Orientalism and the different in western short fictions and early short tales as a reflection of the observer rather than the observed.
