Abstract

It is widely accepted among different researchers that the understanding of world phenomena cannot be restricted by the boundaries between areas of knowledge established by the academy. Interdisciplinary work is quite frequent in various fields, among them, that of Letters. The present article is situated in the interface between Applied Linguistics (AL) and Empirical Science of Literature (ESL). It defines objectives and describes how, together, these two areas may help the
understanding of literary reading. The theoretical assumptions presented here are illustrated with research already developed, emphasizing the empirical nature of the approach.
