Interpretation plays a huge role in our daily lives. The way our mind chooses to see one thing versus the way someone else does. Is a crucial part of our lives, these interpretations determine how we are viewed by others and how we may react to things. In the article, An A from Nabokov, by Edward Jay Epstein, Epstein describes a situation where he confirmed the theory of Nabokov, which was that “ readers that go far beyond what they describe in the words in their books”; Not knowing that the interpretation that Epstein had gotten was from a film. This accidental proving of Nabokov's theory, interested Nabokov the most because Epstein was different from the others. Epstein used the director of the films interpretation as his own, and luckily Nabokov did not know the film. The article,Looks Can Deceive: Why Perception and Reality Don't Always Match Up, by Christof Koch, is similar to Epstein's article because in the end, the reality of Epstein's interpretation was not what Nabokov had thought it to be. The image,Insiders and Reality, above shows how Nabokov must have felt when he realized the reality behind Epstein's interpretations.
Finally, interpretation and reality tend to collide and this article demonstrated that.
