Levi Strauss – Opposites when they are friends and therefore happy and then when they fall out they are sad.

Barthes – Hooks audience. They question ‘will they make up?’ ‘why did they argue?’ ‘how did she die?’

Todorov – Equilibrium (they are friends), disruption (they argue), realisation (gets phone call from friend), attempt to repair (she tries to call her friend) new equilibrium (she visits the grave and makes peace)

Examples:

Barthes – Hot N Cold by Katy Perry. Will she marry him?
