Here are a few things to consider: How does the story relate to its raw material

Here are a few things to consider: How does the story relate to its raw material, the languages and ideologies that make up daily life. Which seem most pertinent?
The relevant passage from Macherey for this question is here: “It is important to recognize that literary texts make a novel use of language and ideology (perhaps the two are not so very different) by wresting them in a new direction and conscripting them into a project peculiar to them alone. by wresting them in a new direction and conscripting them into a project peculiar to them alone.” (pg. 52)
How does the story transform these existing languages by subject them to determinate form and themes such as parental conflict, colonial contact, and technological change?
How do the two different stories function as a way of giving form and taking distance from the existing ideology? In other words, how do the two different accounts of the change made possible by a change of the recording of memory serve to complicate each other. Which is to say how is the meaning of the story found not in one version, one theme, or the other, but in the relationship between the two themes.
The relevant passage from Macherey is here: “what begs to be explained in the work is not that false simplicity which derives from the apparent unity of its meaning, but the presence of a relation, or an opposition, between elements of the exposition or levels of the composition, those disparities which point to a conflict of meaning. This conflict is not the sign of an imperfection; it reveals the inscription of an otherness in the work, through which it maintains a relationship with that which it is not, that which happens at its margins” (pg. 79)
