A sick man is not a humor, but a hypochondriac is, because, qua hypochondriac, he can never admit to good health, and can never do anything inconsistent with the role that he has prescribed for himself. The answer seems to be that it can be helpful, but that it is not fundamental.... Although the tonal disturbance that these images produce is shortlived, with the bantering dialogue quickly restoring the predominantly comedic mode of the film so far, the shift is marked and the moment has a connotative power that reverberates backwards and forwards through the film.

Astounding Science-Fiction 25 (June 1940): 6. You'll see that when students are tested, there is one (or only a few) correct answers that MUST be supported with evidence from the text - a close read. Fish claims that an interpretive theory is itself circular, that the interpreter will always find what he is looking for in the text, that formal patterns "are themselves constituted by an interpretive act." 39 He claims at one point that: Theories always work and they will always produce exactly the results they predict, results that will be immediately compelling to those for whom the theory's assumptions and enabling principles are self-evident.
