What is a Literary Analysis?

When you read books as a hobby, all you take away from it is enjoyment. It does help you understand the world, but it will not be enough for you to evaluate what the author is trying to say. To thoroughly study the work of an author demands the reader to take an in-depth approach. The in-depth evaluation of an author’s writing is what is term as the 'literary analysis.' The process requires a reader to break down the book or an article into portions so that each of those portions can be individually evaluated. To carry out a literary analysis, you can break the literature into sections such as characters, tone, setting, and imagery. It is essential to understand that a literary analysis is not a book review. You do not have to talk about the parts you liked and what you disliked about the book. It is an analysis of each and every element of the writing. To write a persuasive literary analysis, you need to follow a 7-step procedure. 1. Asking questions - You need to ask yourself questions such as "what struck you?" "what were the confusing parts?" "were there any patterns followed?" "were there any ironies or contradictions?" 2. Collecting Evidence - The next stage is to collect evidence. Once you have prepared the questions, the next phase is to break down the book and look for answers to your questions. This phase is all about collecting ideas and material to provide answers. 3. Constructing a Thesis - After collecting all the evidence, it is time to construct a thesis and design your thesis statement. Make sure you have the proper supporting material to strengthen your thesis statement. 4. Developing Arguments - The supporting material that you gathered in the 2nd step will help you here. The evidence that you gathered will help you create the body of your literary analysis. Use the data to develop valid arguments that you will present in the body's content. 5. Writing an Introduction - You have to present your topic in the introduction. You need to give an insight into a reader of what questions you will be addressing in your analysis. You need to provide a necessary context, make sure to answer the "so what" question. In your introduction, present your thesis, and also indicate the shape of your essay. 6. Creating the Body of the Essay - You will have to use your arguments created in step 4 to make the body of your essay. Each of the body paragraphs must begin with a strong topic sentence and encompass one complete thought. 7. The Conclusion - Your conclusion needs to be as powerful as the rest of your essay. Try to do more with this part of your piece than just restating the thesis. Do not summarize your arguments; instead, synthesize them. Revisiting 'so what' in your conclusion is a smart approach. Do not make overblown closing statements.
