Grammar is how it is written -ie the words and how the sentence is put together - the 9 parts of speech stuff

Punctuation - how the piece is read by using markers to donate breathing ie comma, false stop etc

Then you have things like Technical Devices (metaphors, alliteration, etc) which are used by writers to infer information to the reader

Another is sentence structure - this is the length of the sentences, types, and how they are put together to effect the reader. Short sentences are speedy and add pace while longer ones slow it down building tension etc.

There is of course other things like for shadowing, mirroring etc which are writers ways of introducing the future events etc.

After this you have the authors life - this can show why they had certain things in their books to reflect their own lives. For instance Sir Arthur Conan Doyle met Moriarty at school and later included a character of that name in his Sherlock Holmes books.
