How to Read Literature Like a Professor - Foster (Ch18-20)

"Have you ever noticed how often literary characters get wet?" (pg: 152)

Honestly, not really. But now that I think about it, water really does play a symbolic part in works of literature. It is generally true that if you survive an incident where you should have or would have drowned, you have been reborn, kind of like baptism. And if you die, you die. There are many water references in the Bible that are relevant even today. But, as with all symbols and the like, it all depends on your interpretation.
