What questions should you ask yourself when critically analyzing a piece of literature?
tynamite's avatar

  • What message is the author trying to show in the book?
  • What time period was the book set in?
  • Are the attitudes expressed in the book, representative of the attitudes that people had at the time?
  • How does the style of narration used, impact the book; and why do you think the narrator chose to narrate their book in that way?
  • How are the people in the book characterised, and does the author provide a portrayal of them that is personal?
  • Was the book made in a time period, where there were lots of similar books like it?
  • Did the book change literature?

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
