>>7604028 Yes this book was very good when I read it. It opened up a new way of reading for me but that's probably because I used to read very little. It's not a fun read though but once you finish it you will be impressed.
>>7604490 i mean reading the literature equivalent of an beginner-level pop-sci book doesn't seem too scholarly or anything. couldnt they assign the 7 types of ambiguity or something, thats what a high school student should be reading.
>>7604028 I just read it this year. Don't bother. Very rudimentary shit. There are literally chapters dedicated to: "Rain=baptism" "Shared meals=friendship/communion" "Sex=highly symbolic" "Injuries and diseases=indicative of larger character traits and themes (Richard's scoliosis and Humbert Humbert's heart attack are both used as fucking examples - I'm not shitting you; he's that trite.)" "All of these rules are fluid and based upon context" "Texts enrich themselves by taking meaning from previous texts. It is up to you to determine why and how."
You get the picture. Don't read it unless you're a poop-smeared baby bitchboi who can't even read.
