As ‘Poetics’ in the way you use it, is about feelings, you might consider to use the Aristotelean…
Gerard Smit

Ah! I was hoping someone would bring up Aristotle! While an admittedly stodgy dude, as you develop further your ideas above, I’d like to see Poetics expanded and enriched BOTH with Aristotle’s Poetics for the more aesthetic reception side of audience interaction (I love Christina’s framework for this) AND Aristotle’s Rhetoric for the most explicit ways audience co-constructs an experience with logos, ethos, and pathos, and thru interactive referents to rhetorical figures. Neato neato!
