Any person who wants to begin to understand what is happening in any fiction book should read Thomas Foster's work.

☘️ How the Book Changed Me

I haven't read any work of fiction yet ([[Thursday Murder Club]] doesn't count), but as soon as I start one, I'll be cautiously looking for hidden symbols. DR. Thomas recommends creating a list of symbols and ideas. That is what I start doing while assembling notes from the book. Somehow ideas must be transfered and applied to Russian prose or the prose that I know and have read.
