Abstract (2. Language): 
This study suggests that Jasper Fforde’s novel The Eyre Affair (2001) is a fictional representation of the reader response theory. Being the first novel of the Thursday Next series, the novel introduces the reader an alternate universe in which there are no boundaries between the real and the fictitious worlds. Allowing the reader enter Jane Eyre’s story both on a mental and physical level, Fforde’s rewriting fills in the gaps within the source text with alternative incidents. Basing its argument on Louise M. Rosenblatt’s theory concerning the transactional reader response theory, this study displays the reader’s dynamic role during the reading process by emphasizing the intertextual relationship between Jane Eyre and The Eyre Affair.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu çalışma Jasper Fforde’nin The Eyre Affair (2001) adlı romanının okur tepkisi odaklı eleştiri kuramının kurmaca bir temsili olduğu iddiasını ortaya atmaktadır. Thursday Next roman dizisinin ilk romanı olan bu metin, okura gerçek ve kurmaca arasında sınır bulunmayan bir evren sunar. Okurun Jane Eyre’in dünyasına hem zihinsel hem fiziksel olarak girmesine olanak sağlayarak Fforde tarafından kaleme alınan bu yeniden yazım, kaynak metindeki boşlukları alternatif olaylarla doldurmaktadır. Louise M. Rosenblatt’ın okur tepkisi odaklı eleştiri kuramını temel alan bu çalışma, Jane Eyre ve The Eyre Affair romanları arasındaki metinlerarası ilişkiyi vurgulayarak okurun okuma sürecindeki dinamik rolünü gözler önüne sermektedir.
