  2. six hypothetical listeners

    Here I discuss six hypothetical individuals and their reactions to a work of art.

    First is Sophie Laud. She is a highly educated individual, familiar with the elements and structures of the work, the techniques used in its composition, with the works to which it alludes and responds, with the social and political context of the work, and with the histories of all these things.
