"An important transitional book, usefully summarizing the past and thoughtfully mapping out the future of a significant critic's theoretical project." -- Modern Philology.

"There is a much greater emphasis on the reader's function as performer' of the text in Prospecting than in Iser's other books. The two brilliant chapters on Beckett's fiction and drama are crucial here... Literature becomes play' and game, ' and the reader becomes a performer of himself. This idea of performance becomes central to Iser's new theory. Art does not present life; it performs it." -- Yearbook of English Studies.
