So, what do we look for? Here are a few ideas...
  • Symbolism
  • Figurative language
  • Background information and context
  • Author's life experiences influencing thought and writing
  • School of thought/ writing the author adhere's to
  • Style of writing...satire, memoir, realism, etc and information about that style
  • Character development
  • Themes
Where do we find all this?
