Two steps for literary commentary


To begin, we can establish a commentary routine that can give you the confidence necessary to follow through with a decision in these types of exercises:

1.   PREVIOUS PHASE: READING AND COMPREHENDING THE PROPOSED TEXT
            This is a stage which seems obvious and is, nevertheless, done wrong on occasion.  Sometimes a dictionary is necessary but calm and patience is always necessary.  You can do one comprehensive read through to big and one or more afterward to go through and takes notes and highlight elements you want to pay attention to, what these make you feel, or simply the errors you find in them.  Once you are sure you understood the text, you can go on to the next stage.

2. FIRST STAGE: LOCATE THE PROPOSED TEXT
            This means situating the work, fragment, author, and pieve before going into the proper commentary.  You need to be careful not to forget any of these substantial aspects in a good localization.  We are facilitating a strict routine which, over time, you can overcome:
      Presenting the fragment
      Situating the work’s fragment
      Situating the work in the author
      Situating the work and the author in its era or an artistic movement
      Literary genre and subgenre of the work which the fragment belongs to with an allusion to its possible origin (it is possible that this aspect may be analyzed later on)
