Abstract

The ‘structure’ of a text is present in anything the author does to give a ‘shape’ to the reader’s experience as they read. This is where we begin, by thinking about the text in a particular way, concentrating on the question of its ‘shape’, and how it is all fitted together. So, studying ‘structure’ means studying the way the author fits ‘parts’ of the text together, aiming to find out why she fits them together in that particular way.
