It would appear that I read something into your text that you did not intend. But you believe in Death of the Author, so do I still get to be right?
I hate irony. Irony is so pervasive on the internet that it has become the harbinger of a culture of total detachment out of fear of being criticized for being too involved or serious about something.
What's most of interest to me in all this is the twisting, relentlessly complex way Eva asks its audience, "Why do you insist on treating this work of fiction as if it is a historical document?"
Before I came to EvaGeeks I never really saw that. I still don't, when I forget the opinions of others I've read. If anything it always seemed to me like it tried harder than anything else out there to be analyzed in such a way. Whether or not it tried, it certainly succeeded, if its audience is anything to go by.
