This paper aims to examine the reader`s position in Dictee. For Cha, the reader is not only the receptor but also the activator of her works. Her aesthetic vision is very much like that of the reader-response theory, in which the reader casts himself or herself in the role of co-writer of the text. Like most reader-response critics, Cha conceives reading as an active process of regenerating meaning. The relationship between the reader and the narratee in Dictee is very precarious and unpredictable, so the reader is, in many cases, abruptly equated with the narratee by the narrator though being left uninformed about the narrative process. Dictee is also invested with many blanks, visual as well as conceptual, which will eventually lead to many halts and hesitations on the part of the reader. All this considered, Dictee can be counted as a “writerly text,” liberating the reader from the passive reception of commodified meaning and providing a space of interfusion between the author and the reader.
