Welcome to English 2.
English 2 is different from English 1 in this way -
English 2 moves away from comprehension toward analysis. We no longer care about which character was wearing a red dress. In English 2 we care about WHY the author put the character in the red dress. The big shift in English 2 is, we no longer think like readers, we think like authors.
