How to Analyze a Novel (easy)
What is a novel? A "novel" in English = a “roman” in Norwegian. (A “novelle” in Norwegian = a "short story" in English.)
We have used Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as an example, but there are many books to choose from. YOU don't have to pick a Harry Potter book.
(When studying the sections below you will find text extracts included where required.)
A Final Piece of Advice
If you are asked to analyze a novel or make a book report, you will often be asked to do it in the form of an essay where you may be asked to give your opinion of the novel at the end. Choose the elements that made the greatest impression on you. Point out which character/characters you liked best or least and always support your arguments.
