Unformatted text preview: tic is nowhere m ore apparent than in the art of writing, for the literary object is a peculiar top which exis ts only in m ovem ent. To m ake it com e into view a concrete act called reading is neces s ary, and it las ts only as long as this act can las t. Beyond that, there are only black m arks on paper. Now, the writer can not read what be writes , whereas the s hoem aker can put on the s hoes he has jus t m ade if they are to his s ize, and the architect can live in the hous e he has built. In reading, one fores ees ; one waits . He fores ees the end of the s entence, the following s entence, the next page. He waits for them to confirm or dis appoint his fores ights . The reading is com pos ed of a hos t of hypothes es , followed by awakenings , of hopes and deceptions , Readers are always ahead of the s entence they are reading in a m erely probable future which partly collaps es and partly com es together in proportion as they progres s , which withdraws from one page to the next and form s the m oving horizon of the literary object. Without waiting, without a future, without ignorance, there is no objectivity. 35. The author holds that: a . Th e re is a n o b je ctive re a lity a n d a s u b je ctive re a lity. b .
