How do we enter the story? Is it in medias res?
Is the story told chronologically or achronologically?
Discuss the plotting of the text (this would be the are in which events are presented - are there, for instance flash-backs? -, the way clues are given to us and the predictability of the text)
Is the text open or closed (open = many different interpretations and the story does not seem finished; closed = limited interpretations and the story seems finished) Step 5 - Point of View What type of narrator is used?
Is the narrator reliable, unrealiable or does this change through the story?

Summary of the text How to unite this into a written analysis Once you have gone through all of these steps, you are ready to create a text.
Introduction: Step 1
Analysis: Decide what part of the text you believe is the most important and interesting to investigate further. Pick between steps 2-7 (you can pick more than one, but make sure that there is a red line in you assignment)
Interpretation: Step 8
Contextualization: Step 9 So, the most important thing is to find a focus and elaborate on this. Do NOT try to go through the entire model for analysis in your assignment. Focus on something and dig into this.
