• Analysis is not summary. Do not summarize the story; your audience already knows the story. Analysis is the practice of looking closely at small parts to see how they affect the whole. What is the main message Hemingway is relaying in this story?
• Analyze the impact of the author’s choices, discussing how these decisions affect the story’s meaning.
• Organize your ideas so that each new idea builds on the one it follows to create a unified whole.
Take notes on its theme of war, characters, setting, plot, and so on. Be sure the notes include looking beyond the surface to the deeper meaning the author is trying to relay. Analysis also looks at why the meaning is important.
