The Audacity of Literary Theory

If people think economics is audacious in applying it's tools to areas far beyond it's purview is nothing compared to the audacity of literary theory that applied the logic of literature to explaining reality. (see batman the dark knight returns for example).

But I still miss it (see this recent NYTimes article analyzing thelma and louise and pretty woman). Used to read a fair amount for my education policy classes but hardly any now for many years.
