No 1 (48) 2017 - Limits of interpretation

In Issue 1 (48) 2017 of Tekstualia we are taking on the question of the limits of interpretation. What is overinterpretation? A harmful excess committed with or without intention, a mistake, an abuse of the original text (as Umberto Eco would have it)? Or, perhaps, an activity which opens up new ways of reading the original, allowing to discover hitherto unknown meanings? Where and when does the reader stray away from the safe paths of interpretation into the conspicuous zone of overinterpretation? Can we pinpoint exactly when a creative analysis of a given text turns into a cynical manipulation of the latter? What should we do with such interpretation-related categories like context, analysis, textual and authorial intentions, or meaning? These are just a few of the issues raised by the authors in the upcoming 1 (48) 2017 issue of Tekstualia.
