I would disagree with the previous answer regarding the first quote. I do not think the author is suggesting that our hearts "cannot learn" but rather that love is never ending learning process,  and that we are constantly evolving with each new experience. That's my perspective.

I would agree regarding the second quote. :-)

I will answer any questions regarding American and/or world literature of the 20th century, and literary criticism (especially Psychoanalytic, New Historical, and Postmodern theory). Do NOT send me excerpts of texts for interpretation. I will NOT answer homework questions or help write research papers.


College English teacher, avid reader, B.A. in Literature, M.F.A. in Creative Writing. I am well versed in Literary criticism (especially Psychoanalytic, Historical, and Postmodern theory). I have done extensive research on the plays of August Wilson, Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita," early espionage fiction (i.e. Graham Greene's "A Gun For Hire", Eric Ambler's "Coffin for Demitrios"), and the American suburban novel (i.e. Don DeLillo's "White Noise", John Updike's "Couples").
