#5276 The Constant Readers Thread!

Posted by Feathers on 16 May 2016 - 06:24 AM

This is a good thread idea OP. Book reports are great devices to practice writing and analyses. It helps to find patterns in any given material and identify your reactios and interpretations to the work. You might want to consider these major aspects when analysing literary work in the future.


Number 1 is the plot: the sequence of events.

Look at theme: those are central ideas in the work.

Character is important: Traits and actions of the people.

Keep in mind the structure: how the parts of whole relate to one another

Look at the setting: the times and places, etc.

Point of views should be noted: 1st, 2nd, 3rd person. Narrators, main characters...

Style or fashion: how the words and sentences are presented.

Imagery: what kind of pictures get created in your head.

What is the tone of the work: what are the attitudes of the author and how are they directed to the reader. Use imagery to ask questions.

The ever present symbolism: what are the underlying meanings below the surface.

All the rhythm and rhyme: is it good to dance to? Beats, meters, and repetitions.
