I thought reading was fundamental!

I just wrote a paper on "The Flowers" by Alice Walker. The short story was nine paragraphs of sheer hell! Why cant these authors say what they mean instead of using symbolism and innuendo? It took me four pages to write an analysis of the story. The Professor's response was "Good analysis, but you need to dig deeper!". Arggggg.... I have to finish a paper on "The Lottery" by midnight tonight. I'm already at six pages and am trying to "dig deeper". This literature class sucks. Can someone please explain to me why I need to take a literature class when I'm an Organizational Leadership major?

Yes Unlimited literature class does suck. Yes authors should be straight forward and not fawk around with stupid stuff. I hate looking for the deeper meaning in books. I would rather read them and take it at face value. Fortunately, My english class was easy because I BS'ed about Moby Dick. Sometimes if you just give them an off he wall interpretation then they eat it up!!!
I dont know why you have to have it Org. leadership. thats kinda like why do I have to take Pscyhology or history for mechanical engineering... Stupid core classes

For anyone who likes dark, id have to recommend Perdido Street Station by Chine Mieville. Very interesting fantasy/sci-fi hybrid set in a decaying city and civilization, but definitly not light reading.

Chine Mieville is an interesting author. Writes much along the same style as Lovecraft. I read King Rat when it came out many years ago. It was a good read, but I didn't like the style enough to keep reading his works. I think Leviathan is on tiny's reading list, but I can't remember.

Just finished "The Appeal" by Grisham. Good book about manipulating state supreme courts.
