"It's always been going on and it's everywhere around us and every story you've ever heard or read or watched is part of it." (Foster 32)

This I think illustrates the concept of intertextuality expressed by Foster very very well.  Everything we read is connected to a thousand other stories, events or personal experiences of the author. And as we read more and more our palates for literature grow more seasoned and we can begin to recognize instances of intertextuality more readily, and become cogniscent of the patterns of plot and character that can be found therein.

I agree. This is one of those many things that gets easier over time, provided we continue reading over that time.

I agree with what Pink Floyd says about thought control, but is it necessarily true that education and thought control go together? The more educated you are, the more you can recognize -- and resist -- effort to control your thoughts with slogans, with bribes, with fear.

Okay... the teacher will now leave the kids alone.
