What is Interpretation?

DEFINITION:

“Reading, explicating, making sense: these are three names given to the activity of ‘interpretation’” (Lentricchia & McLaughin 121).

“Interpretive theories are not foundational but rhetorical” (Lentricchia & McLaughin 133).

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO ME?


Interpretation is how one digests, views, translates, conveys, explains, makes sense of, analyzes. When I write a book review for authors and publishers, I’m providing my interpretation of whether I like the book and whether I recommend it to others. Readers are either trusting my judgment or not. Readers, authors, and publishers may ask how did I come to the conclusions I have and why? What basis am I using to arrive at my conclusion?
