Try this…

“Meet a piece of literature on its own terms, not yours. If you have to “relate” to a work in order to understand it, you are not reading sufficiently. In other words, don’t try to fit the piece into your life; try to see the world the piece creates. Then, if you’re lucky, its world will help you re-see your own.”
