True Intentions

"It seems to me that if we want to get the most out of our reading, as far as is reasonable, we have to try to take the works as they are intended to be taken."
-228, Foster

This means, you can't read a work that was written in the 1800's and relate it completely to right now.  Everything would be different.  No one had electricity or cars.  No one treated people back then like people are treated now.  There really wasn't any offense meant when someone said something that could be taken wrongly now.  The works were meant to be read as though they, the reader, were set in that time period.
