Shakespeare and the Reader postulates that Shakespeare consciously uses a number of strategies in order to frustrate the reader’s expectations and eventually manipulates his/her response. The astounding variety of responses seems to have been in the forefront of Shakespeare’s mind with a more conscious level of decision making while producing his plays. This study shows the dialogical interaction between the text and the reader and the importance of the implied reader in determining the response of the recipient. In fact, the reader produces a series of responses provoked and demanded by Shakespeare but the responses emerge as a result of the effect of the text and the reader’s power of imagination.
