Death of the author deconstructs the myth of primary ownership of a creator in his work. Originality it self is an illusion, for creativity is built upon past works and ideas that is borrowed and reinterpreted to give new meaning to a work in which it was built upon. Language itself is a constitution that has it’s own structure and hierarchy meant to give the author control over the narrative, symbolism creating myth to conceal the truth from the massive culture. However, the meaning behind a work is lost when the author begins to write. The language becomes a space containing the ideas that offers multi dimensional meaning to the readers. The essence of work changes as readers extract and reinterpret the narrative providing their own meaning base on their experiences. Therefore, part of the ownership of work transferred to the audience. It becomes an art piece when readers create meaning. An author’s role is realized when the reader contribute their experience in the work which unifies the piece as a whole. The notion of ‘death’ in this content symbolizes the elimination individualizes authorship and transfer of value within a work to the audience which in some ways effect them.
