] I always wondered what the authors of classics themselves would say about professors analyzing their works to death...and easily OVERanalyzing...especially Shakespeare editions with a full (opposite) page of notes..."Oh, I didn't think of that...glad I chose those words!"
You're right. My French teacher of last year was talking of a Nelligan poem and she analizing everything in it. I think the only person that can really analized a poem is the writer. Sometimes people go too far in their thoughts that even the writer have not thought of his point of view.
Anyway, I wrote some poems and I truely believe that no other persons than me can understand the deep meaning (I even comtimes don't understand it!)
