Question:

Why do different genres in analysis matter?

Inactive
Abigail H.
Answer:

It's important to understand the different aspects of genre in any case, but especially in analysis. In writing an analysis, whether for composition, or higher classes, one wants to understand the genre of the specific text and the rules within that. For instance, if one is writing an analysis of a movie as opposed to a poem, there would be vastly different tools and questions to ask.

Question:

How do I compare and contrast different writers effectively?

Answer:

In comparison one wants to consider similarities. Take for example two female writers: are they the same time period? What themes are they discussing and how do they highlight each other? What are the major differences, and do they counter each other or do they comment on each other effectively? How do these texts, side by side, add or take away from each other? Remember, no text exists in a vacuum, all texts refer to each other in some way.

Question:

How do I successfully annotate texts?

Answer:

While reading, you should think about the topic and what the focus is. Ask yourself questions: who is this author? What are they trying to communicate or persuade? Who published the text and what can this tell you about the publishers perspectives and intended audience. Skim the text prior to fully reading, and then annotate or note as you read. Highlight the thesis statement, underline unclear thoughts, highlight important terms, take note of your reactions to the text, and jot down counter arguments.
