I love that you have the definitive analysis of what this book is about, which is apparently the aggregate of others (teachers and other students’) opinions? Read it 20/30/40 years after high school and tell me if you think it’s about the same thing. A good novel will change its meaning as the reader gains life experience and (hopefully) changes their own views over time. What I paid attention to in high school has absolutely no affect on what this book is about, other than the life experience I gained from what I DID pay attention to..
The “Constellations” spot employs an imaginative and dramatic storyline. In a brilliant night sky, the constellations Sagittarius, Hercules and Taurus have come to life. The archer Sagittarius draws his bow and fires an arrow that trails a glittering rope of stars.
