Ambiguity has been of great interest to literary theorists for
some time now -- phenomenologists (eg, Ingarden), narratologists
(eg, Genette), and (post)structuralists (eg, Barthes) among
others. However, they are all much more interested in exploring
how textual ambiguity works than in "solving" or eliminating it.
It may be trite but I think it's true: once a text is
disambiguated, it's no longer interesting.
