A Literary Analysis Introduction


This short story study was written to teach Imagery and Mood to high school students. Mood is often the subject of many literary analysis essays (persuasive essays) and it is important that high school students understand mood in prose and poetry.  A blank Imagery Analysis Table is included to allow the teacher to make copies for her students so that they may apply this cutting edge approach to various literary works.



This short story unit study makes literary analysis concrete for students through the use of a logical step by step process which guides students from imagery to mood, via the author’s use of figurative language, descriptive language, and sound devices.
