In both there is a history to keep drawing from that impacts what happens from there on out. It now has more substance after he explained how he sees it. I also found it interesting how much interpretations can vary. Obviously a person’s beliefs, opinions, experiences, and just about everything else can influence how they understand what they read, but seeing it in action is different. In the test case Foster sees Persephone, the history major focuses on the conflicts between the character and the social implications of the garden party, then the English major perceives that it’s a coming of age story where the character realizes that others hardships are not her own thus insignificant to her.
