Chapter 7 ("Mirrors") tackles the question of a threshold between semiotic and presemiotic phenomena. The phenGmenology of our expe­ rience with mirror images represents the experimentum crucis for testing. Dancing through semiotics, reader-response criticism, the value of the apostrophe and much more, Jonathan Culler opens up for every reader the closed world of literary criticism.
