What is a literary analysis?
A literary analysis explains a work of fiction, poetry or drama by means of interpretations. An interpretation is your individual response that addresses the meaning of the work. An interpretation often will be the thesis of your paper. The goal of a literary analysis (as with any other analysis) is to broaden and deepen your understanding of a work of literature.

Be sure to submit a works cited page with completed assignment.
After reading the work the first time, ask yourself the following questions:
As you re-read the work, make sure you can answer these questions. Then ask yourself the following questions, which may help you to discover deeper meanings that will lead you to an interpretation.
All of the above questions should be considered during your brainstorming stage, but the essay should not be a series of answers to these questions. Additionally, you should not turn in a plot summary of what happens in the selected work(s). Your analysis should lead your essay with some plot occasionally supporting your ideas, not the other way around.
An analysis of fiction will help you dig deeper into the stories and will aid you throughout the rest of the semester with your understanding of the course material.
(Write an essay of your own using three symbols, themes, characters, etc. Use citations from the actual story to strengthen your analysis. Then incorporate research into your essay.)
Any secondary sources must, of course, be documented. Also, direct quotes should be documented.
