Well then you're probably not a very good one.

But why did he make the author's side of the venn diagram blue? And why the teacher's side red? Lets take a moment to discuss this, class.

When it comes to writing, waste not want not; authors are very precise in picking their words. If a passage lacks any authorial vision, like a passage merely denoting blue curtains, it will usually be cut in the revision stage. Should it remain in the final text, then those blue curtains ****** mean something, even if it is only as simple as the author trying craft the perfect visual in the readers head. Little to nothing in literature is as mundane as this describes--if text writing was so straight-forward, it wouldn't be fun for authors to write.

What the author meant: The curtains were ******* blue.

is this like the youtube mentality, where you repeat what was in the content?

If the author went out of their way to describe curtains I'm sure the English teacher is onto something.

What the author meant doesn't really matter all that much as long as your own interpretation satisfies you.

Nope.

Why would the author write that the curtains were blue for no real reason? If he's giving information about the setting so that readers can better picture what's going on, then I'll agree with you. However, it's such a specific detail that it has to mean more than just the literal, otherwise it's a worthless sentence.

Don't believe me? Read any - and I mean any - authors' criticism of their own work. There's reason for such detail.

Ok, I've seen this picture a lot, and I've been in a high school English class, so I definitely know where this post is coming from, but in poetry and literature, the author never just writes "fluff," or just a needless detail without a reason behind it. Colors are especially important to symbolism, especially such colors as red and blue, which respectively represent passion and calm. So, yes, while sometimes English teachers can dive a bit much into a work of literature, the author doesn't tell you things about the setting just for 						*****					 and giggles.

Lets put this in perspective that is easier understandable for modern society.

When you watch a movie, almost everything that they put into the movie is done so intentionally. Every scene, every line spoken, every character, every costume, et cetera.
This may not work for curtains in movies because sometimes they have to work with what they're given but nonetheless the idea is the same.

When an author writes about the curtains, they are doing so because it holds meaning. And if it didn't then it would be quickly removed by the editor or replaced by something with more meaning to it.

If you don't believe me watch a movie you've seen before and pay attention to the little things you have overlooked before. Sometimes you can figure out the ending about halfway through the movie, or at least parts of it.

Read the poem, "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost (i think)

It talks about how a man is walking down a path and come to a fork in the road, and he can't figure out which path to choose, so he chooses one and apparently it makes a hug difference.

ANYWAYS, my english teacher literally spent the entire class talking about the inner meanings of this poem, and the last 10 minutes she says "so does anyone actually know why he wrote this poem" no one answered, she than proceeds to tell us that he wrote the poem simply because the man went on a walk and came to a fork in the road, than decided to write a poem about it, he meant of nothing else other than that.

#11 to #7 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/04/2013) [-]
I don't think so, I think it's more about how he is labouring over the choice of which path to take, and when he does finally pick one, he cannot help but regret and ponder what would've happened should he have taken the other one.

'I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.'

Honestly I really hate when the teacher is like "the book can be looked at in any interpretation"

******** , the author wrote it with the intent of sending a certain story, message, or idea with the use of symbols. I couldn't give a **** what I think it means, or what the teacher thinks it means, no i want what the author thinks it means.

The author's opinion only counts because the author wrote it, he is the creator and knows 100% why this is here and whatnot.
#17 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/04/2013) [-]
I don't want to be pedantic, but the example doesn't match up with the Venn Diagram. In accordance with the diagram, the author would have meant something else by it.
