Literature term help (psychic fabric)?
A question on my reading assignment says “name some psychic fabrics of the poem?” So the question is, what’s a psychic fabric?

This is what I found as a definition and explanation
the reader’s reaction
A work of literature “is not a solid piece of fabric, but rather a series of threads separated by gaps that readers must fill in, drawing on their own experiences and knowledge” (Kirszner and Mandell 2029)
Personal identification with text
drawing on similar experiences
drawing on personal knowledge of places, topics, or events
