Journal Entry 4 by tabby-cat-owner at Bellingham, Washington USA on Saturday, April 6, 2024
The author who wrote this book was certainly a fount of knowledge, and I am convinced that he was, most assuredly, a good college professor of English. That being said, this book was not a success for me as a reader in that by the end of the book, I was rather disgusted with the academic attitude toward great literature. I understand more fully now why I like to read nonfiction. I am glad that I did not major in English (Literature) in college (university), because I would not have enjoyed it and probably would not have been successful at it. So much analysis is certainly very wearying, then there was the chapter on irony that makes nonsense of anything previously discussed.
