Hello! Who can help me to understand the expression "over-refining" used by Stephen Fry ? The sentence that follows is :"I'm reading into the incident what I want to read into it."It is taken from Stephen Fry's autobiography "Moab is my Washpot"u
That being said... Your citation gives two sentences where Fry says that what he's doing (in a previous sentence) is "over-refining," but not the sentence in which he actually does the thing he now describes as "over-refining." A better citation would include the sections before and after the word in question.
