How did you learn to analyze literature and media the way you do? Because it's absolutely fascinating and breathtaking.
ahhh, thank you!!! i’m so glad you enjoy my thoughts.
i think the process i use to come at literature etc stems from the study abroad i did in oxford—i bit off more than i could chew, asked for a tutorial in postmodern literature without literally any idea what i was asking about, except that i liked calvino and michael chabon…spent three weeks trying to comprehend the cool kids club in their entirety? that was a mind-expanding experience.
also the tension between being raised with conservative southern baptist theology and what i continue to learn about the way the world actually works probably has something to do with the way i analyze literature and media.
and being an art major means you do a lot of analysis, incl self-analysis, to make meaning out of artworks.
and i have a personality quirk called ‘i must think about all things from all angles!’ and i inevitably miss angles but by god do i try
and i’m still working on it, i have a lot to improve, but in the meantime i’m so glad you enjoy!
