To analyse means to closely examine a text to be able to understand, interpret, and make meaning of it. When analysing a literary or non-literary text, you should study it in detail, by identifying the different parts it consists of and how these parts relate to each other and to the whole text.

When analysing a text, you need to support your claims. A strong analysis contains explanations of your ideas and evidence from the text that supports those ideas. The evidence often consists of a combination of specific details, direct quotations, and to some extent summary.
