How is the novel organized?
Chronological organization: exposition at the beginning, progression towards climax and denouement.
In media res: action is going on at the beginning of the novel; we are given flashbacks to what happened in the past.
Unchronological: novel is presented to us in pieces like parts in a puzzle, and the reader has to put it together to get a sense of chronology.
Chapters and units, if any:
To what do chapters and units correspond (historical periods, division between characters, different settings, etc.)?
Does length of divisions (i.e. chapters or units) have any particular significance?
