Famous Novelists on Symbolism in Their Work and Whether or Not it was Intentional

Famous Novelists on Symbolism in Their Work and Whether or Not it was Intentional

I loved this article. I for one hated analysing a perfectly good novel to death in English class. There are some novels that I read in school that I actually enjoyed until we picked them apart with tweezers. Can we please stop destroying childrens’ budding love of reading before it has a chance to thrive?

As an author, I look at articles like these and wonder what kernels of extraneous “meaning” would be slapped onto my books if anyone were to analyse them. Such thoughts always lead to cringing and the need to go look at pictures of kittens.

Author: Ethan Kincaid

Ethan Kincaid was born in 1985 in Brockville, a sleepy little town on the St. Lawrence River. He graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a degree in Linguistics and a minor in Japanese Language. After finishing his education, he settled down there with his wife Kaitlyn and became a full-time writer. In 2011, he moved to Montreal and discovered its vibrant writing culture. In 2015, Ethan moved to Helsinki, Finland with his wife; he works as a props crafter and part time author. His first book, Blood of Midnight: The Broken Prophecy is the first of a new fantasy trilogy. The greatest joy in his life lies in helping budding writers find their voices. In his words: "I like to shake people until cool stuff comes out!"
