may i suggest "dialogues" instead of discussions, that carries , or is a carries of lexical , laconic as well as syntax ! thus interpretation is upto readers and writers, read - 'reading and writing', or 'writing and difference and deference'- Derrida on Deconstruction : points of rupture , power discourse , subliminal sub-text , containment,management and subvertion and invertion of form or style , with the stream and theme or topic/contextual approach , culture /historical materialism by Stephen Greenblatt, 'Introduction' in Renaissance Self -Fashioning , Terry Eagleton, Literary Theory: An Introduction. 2nd edn. (Oxford:
Blackwell). hope that would help , as well as let the boken , fragmented , tonal quality or voice or narrative reveal the intent , meaning significance as well as interpretations, which further's one's horizonz and expands field of knowledge,understanding experience and wisdom. Hope that was helpful
