Literature.

Read this article, quite interesting!

I guess to summarize…

A boy decided to email the writers of his time with a survey and their opinions on symbolism and inferences of their works and their intentions. While some of the writers were quite rude and others quite figuratively dense (oh… typical), it does give quite an insight. Taken two ways, it gives me a greater appreciation of the human mind and how good literature takes on a form of its own, far beyond a writer’s own ability as well as makes me giggle as the article pokes a jab or two towards our ever annoying English teachers who seem to all enjoy analyzing literature to death.
