I tried to explain this to my english teachers in the sense this is what 
essays do to books. It takes the magic out of the story by being over 
analytical.  They wouldn't have any of that.  A good story has to be 
picked apart to reveal more secrets of course. It all eventually leads 
to author comparison through measurement and the intellectual community 
trying to browbeat each other. It's all really quite childish. I got my 
grades and left, thus ended my foray into the world of english lit. All 
the better for me I guess. Now I just read a book and enjoy it. *sigh*

Sorry all for the off topic rant.

P.S. This is interesting... Thunderbirds canadian/english dictionary 
does not know how to spell 'english'.
