And Furthermore.. analysis sucks

And even when i can't fault the analysis of a beautiful piece of writing, is it even right to perform that analysis ? Yes, it's true that For Esmè with Love and Squalor has some very nice symetries between elements of squalor and elements of love, now that you point it out. So why do i feel cheaper ? I have a suspicion that possibly we'd have better writers in the world if writing and literature programs were outlawed. No. That's not true. But for heaven's sake, just read a story for the story now and then folks. I'm pretty sure most authors write for readers, not for critics.
Okay. Diatribing done.
