I Heart You

Ch.23-24 of How to Read Literature Like a Professor.

"Aside from being the pump that keeps us alive, the heart is also, and has been since ancient times, the symbolic repository of emotion" (208).

Amazing how this hasn't changed. I don't think I'd ever be able to associate the heart with something else besides emotion. The heart in its symbolic sense is emphasized in some of today's media: books, video games, movies, etc. I think it's pushing it a little bit with having hearts on almost everything though.
