It's been 15 years since I was last in a literature class, and it felt good to feel my brain cells jigging and popping again! Thomas Foster loves literature, writers, characters and figuring out 'what it all means'...( to him, obviously, he never pretends to be all-knowing and leaves room for everyone's interpretations), connecting stories to larger symbolicism that reaches out to us all. He is never boring or obnoxious, truly sharing his passion with gusto. As an added boon to me, as a French reader, I very much enjoyed the chapters about the influence of Shakespeare and the Bible on literature since they were never addressed in my classes.
I am looking forward to his next books!
