The Creative Consciousness: The Role of the Text and the Bio-Text

J. S. Anand


The creative process has a unique universality about it. Nobody can create anything out of nothingness. The great body of literature created till date relates itself not only to man, but to his social movements as well, which underlines the fact that creation is man-centric and man is society-specific. No text can be expected to yield its meaning if it is torn from its reality and interpreted in an arbitrary manner by a proactive reader. The fact is that the creator is as much a by-product of his circumstances as is the reader; and then, the text which passes from generation to generation also develops its own distinct existence independent of the creator or the reader.
