A good way to make your own summaries is to read carefully, and make a note everytime something happens. Then, look over your notes and decide what was the most important event or revelation of that act. Then, expand upon those events in two ways-- one, explain what happened and what it means to the story which is the summary. Then interpret what you think the events mean in a more general sense and you've got the beginnings of an analysis. Good luck!
