How to answer a 'how and why' literature question

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to answer a 'how and why' literature question? Obviously, the how will focus more on the literature aspect and why will be more about context. Do I work on both aspects together, or separately?

How = what has the author done to make it so?

Why = why is what he/she has done effective?

One leads on from the other. If you explain the how of something you then also explain the why of it. To my mind it is all one paragraph.
