Shakespearean-EC: The Shakespearian Tarot by Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki; Illustrated by Paul Hardy Review by Eileen Croutch The author has undertaken to find passages and images from the complete works of William Shakespeare to make a tarot deck. The author mentions The Servants of the Light Tarot often and so this leads me to believe the Shakespearian Tarot is a variation of the aforementioned deck. This deck is certainly no Rider-Waite clone. This deck comes with a book that describes the plays mentioned, interesting information about the plays, an upright meaning and a reversed meaning. There is no box for the deck once you break the cellophane and there is no little white book (LWB). Not that you need it with the large book. (tarot passages.com)

Emily Brewster, Associate Editor for Merriam-Webster, gets to the root of the issue and comes to a surprising conclusion!
Famous Novelists on Symbolism in Their Work and Whether It Was Intentional | Mental Floss: Ray Bradbury: “No, I never consciously place symbolism in my writing. That would be a self-conscious exercise and self-consciousness is defeating to any creative act. Better to let the subconscious do the work for you, and get out of the way. The best symbolism is always unsuspected and natural."Speaking of the author, her work and symbolic meanings, I'll never forget the enormous hubris of a literature professor I had once, who told us that a particular author (I won't name names) "really" meant such and such. She knew this because, after all, she was the professor. She then went on to tell us that she met the author at a gathering of some kind and told the author what she "really" meant!
Question: “Do readers ever infer that there is symbolism in your writing where you had not intended it to be? If so, what is your feeling about this type of inference? (Humorous? annoying? etc.?)”
