Literature Analysis Questions

Here is the initial set of questions for your literature analysis. We will refine this list and add to it after reading the first round of each others' analyses.

1. Briefly summarize the plot of the novel you read.
2. Succinctly describe the theme of the novel. Avoid cliches.
3. Describe the author's tone.  Include three excerpts that illustrate your point(s).
4. Describe five literary elements/techniques you observed that strengthened your understanding of the theme and/or your sense of the tone.  Include three excerpts that will help your reader understand each one.

  9. You don't need to email URLs but you do need to post them as comments under the "Set Up Your Blog" post. That way everyone's will be in the same place for easy reference. And yes, you need three excerpts/textual examples for each element.
