The knowledge of an author’s gender influences the way in which their work is read and how might feminist reading/writing practices address this influence

ABSTRACT: 

In literary works, gender issues are said to play a role in the production or experience of literature. As noted by Morris, it is generally believed that creative forms of writing can offer special insight into human experience and sharpen reality (Morris, 1993, p.7). the reality of gender differences can be brought to life through literary canon. This article is an attempt to explain how knowledge of an author’s gender is said to influence the way in which their work is read. In addition, the essay further discusses how feminist reading/writing practices might address this influence.
