Chapter 22
He's Blind for a Reason, You Know

I liked this chapter a lot. I read Oedipus Rex when I was in high school and I loved it. Everything that I read in this chapter was something I already knew though. When dissecting the work when I first read it, I was told to look for all the references to sight and lack thereof. There is always a second and deeper meaning to blindness.

When Foster mentions that some authors bring in a blind character to make the point more obvious it all started to click for me. The fact that most people do not close read literature and if you want to make a point you're going to have to take all of your readers into consideration and go with overkill. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
