Analyzing Short Stories utilizes a classic, tried and true approach to the study of literature. Analyzing short stories is the easiest place for student to begin learning the concepts of analysis and evaluation because the structure and elements are generally the same; each story contains a conflict, characters, a setting, an emphasis on language, and a clear distinctive voice. Analyzing Short Stories provides the basic information needed to understand literary writing and promote a basic format for writing a paper about a short story. After mastering the analytical process, students appreciate literature and can objectively judge a story's quality. Furthermore, this skill can be generalized and extended to nonliterary subjects, providing a basic methodology for writing about subjects in science and the humanities.
