When writing essays, whatever the subject may be, I find question after question spinning through my mind.
But sometimes, I find myself unable to answer them.
Not because I have no comprehension or ideas, but because English Literature is a subjective area and there is nearly always more than one.
I write around the question, around and around, exploring it’s possibilities and limitations and I can’t always reach a decisive answer…
Everything is subject to interpretation, many many interpretations, so why should I have to settle for just one?
I have been known to make a decision… and go back on it a paragraph or even just a sentence later. Something my tutors have found hilarious.
But I suppsoe the bottom line is I have to at least have an opinion on what I think the answer is and not be scared of being wrong.
Because if there is no answer, how can I be wrong?!
