Question 1 1. How can the initial stages of analysis help you feel connected to a piece of literature?
Read the passage and answer the question:
In the sleek, glittering world of science fiction I found mental liberation from Fargo Middle School, with its grimy, pea-green tiles that hadn't been cleaned in years and grody old posters about the dangers of peer pressure. I got detention once for daydreaming in class - and then I started getting detention on purpose, so I could sit in the quiet office and dream of alien civilizations and the laws of robotics, instead of trudging home to a house overflowing with siblings to bother me.

The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,

But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbour know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
