How to Read Literature Like a Professor

“Here’s the problem with symbols: people expect them to mean something. Not just any something, something in particular. Exactly. Maximum. You know what? It doesn’t work like that… so some symbols do have a relatively limited range of meanings, but in general a symbol can’t be reduced to standing for only one thing.”

from How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster pgs. 97-98
