    Agreed, I am so worried about getting the meaning completely messed up. I am just not able to see the 'profound' meaning behind things like others are.

    The trick is to just make it up. I don't believe half the rubbish I write as 'inference' from literature, but it gets you the mark because the good thing about literature is that, unless you state something completely and explicity, factually wrong (e.g. 'Lennie is more intelligent that George') they can't mark you down because it's your interpretation, and the whole point of literature is to give your interpretation.

    Don't worry about getting the meaning messed up, because if that's what you think it means then the examiner has to credit you for seeing that.
