ANALYZING LITERARY WRITING

The following is a useful framework for the analysis of literary writing:

  • Character
  • Dialogue
  • Figures of speech (similes and metaphors)
  • Pace
  • Paragraph and chapter structure
  • Point of view
  • Time sequencing: organization of the chronology of events
  • Vocabulary: word choice, word color and word sound (antonyms and synonyms; alliteration)
