Literary analyses are generally constructed like theses, and analysis is geared to discussing and proving a premise. Literary analysis is a formal critical assessment and interpretation of literary form, subject texts, genres of literature, technique, and use of style and content. The analysis may contain some or all of these features. This is a completely different process from a commercial or literary review. Literary analyses are applied to classics, and are actually studies, as much as a form of analysis. A literary analyst may research areas of literature, conducting a study of several authors or texts in a particular field.
