He didn't address that specifically. We didn't do assigned interpretation in this class. It was a peer discussion of the books with him acting as facilitator. He touched on the concept of how society molds behavior by promoting certain mores and penalizing those who don't follow them. We talked about the pros and cons of mores.We talked a bit amongst ourselves about the group marriage concept though.It was the first time some of us had heard of it. Not me-my mother was a psych major and I liked to read her books.
I had other lit classes that used the assigned interpretation approach. They tended to be as dry as three day old bread. They didn't turn me off to reading or the classics, but I did tune out in those classes.
