  Penguin Reading Guides | Author, Author | David Lodge
Author, Author, David Lodge's brilliant fictional portrait of Henry James, begins on James's deathbed as the exhausted and disoriented author is about to be awarded Britain's highest civilian honor, the Order of Merit.
After submitting the beauty and subtlety of his writing to the practical demands of the stage, with its endless delays, maddening rounds of revisions, unreliable producers, and fickle audiences bred on farces and crude entertainments, James's hopes for fame and fortune met with crushing disappointment.
Author, Author, however, is very much more than simply a re-creation of James's failure in the theater.

  Author - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The phrase "Death of the Author" was popularized by Roland Barthes in his 1968 essay with the same name.
The death of the author is in self-conscious opposition to the New Criticism, a literary critical movement popular in England and America in the first half of the 20th century.
According to this movement, the author's intent is assumed to be quite clear to the author and it becomes the critic's task to understand this intent.

   The Author Function (1970), Excerpt
Secondly, the "author-function" is not universal or constant in all discourse.
Furthermore, where in mathematics the author has become little more than a handy reference for a particular theorem or group of propositions, the reference to an author in biology or medicine, or to the date of his research has a substantially different bearing.
Nevertheless, these aspect of an individual, which we designate as an author (or which comprise an individual as an author), are projections, in terms always more or less psychological, of our way of handling texts: in the comparisons we make, the traits we extract as pertinent, the continuities we assign, or the exclusions we practice.

Author, Author is not quite a new departure (the great novelist Henry James was a presence in Lodge’s much-acclaimed Thinks…), but here The Master is the central character in a brilliantly vivid picture of the man and his times.
Author, Author begins with the Great Man’s death, surrounded by worried servants (struggling to cope with his growing irrationality); then we are shown his remarkable life, including his friendship with the affable Punch illustrator George Du Maurier.
The personification of revered author Henry James is a triumph for David Lodge.

The attention is thus turned away from a purely historically or socially based definition, as the relationship between the author and the text take center stage.
