Nooooooo! <screaming and running wildly off in all directions>
Blending Leslie's assignment question in with another thread,
*please* don't anyone tell me that doing well at these literature
questions is a requirement for being a good tech writer.
I aced journalism, I aced English comp, and I even aced creative
writing, but, man, I just didn't get this literature stuff. For
some reason, my answers to this sort of question never matched
my instructor's expectations. I squeeked by with a C. And I
think he was being kind.
