Ha, ha, I was that student! 🙂 I have to admit that over-analysis of literature in school really put me off reading many of the classic and persists to this day.
I even feel this way as an adult tutor! Glad to know you felt the same in school.
I felt the same. After having taken a college Literature Class I still think that’ true in a lot of situations 😛
