Gaps and Silences - an example of a popular method of interpreting texts

This critical method of examining texts for gaps and silences, created by Pierre Macherey and and Paulo Freire from the mid 1960s to the early 1970s, could be applied to any text. Therefore you could try using this approach on your  texts and thereby meet that crucial assessment objective, AO3. It is, perhaps, no accident that the video's creator, Ben Johnston, is from either Australia or New Zealand as this approach to analysing texts is heavily embedded in the curriculum in the antipodes!
