Without the audience, is there writing?

When reading a literary work, it is important to note how the Speaker, the Setting, Sound and Visual Imagery, and the Audience are each interconnected to give substance and structure to the piece.

Of each of these, the most important could be said to be the Audience for which it was written for. If the Audience will not be able to see the Speaker, Setting and Sound & Visual imagery in the way in which the author intends, the meaning and even the very spirit of the work will be lost.

For this reason, when a writer is developing the concept which will be the foundation of what they are writing, it is primary that the Audience play a key factor in the choices made.
