Is English not the most worthless subject in school. I don't mean elementary and middle school english but high school English where you analyse poetry and novels. Honestly I could care less about the literary devices used in MacBeth or the true meaning behind Frost's poetry. Its not a practical skill and its a waste of time.
I hade this teacher and she could find symbolism in anything. Why can't the dirty floor just symbolize a dirty floor? I think poetry and novels are what they are, why does there always have to be deeper meaning behind everything. Unless you know what the author was thinking how can you analyse any literary work??
