Compare the process of analysis engaged in by Structuralists with the process of New Criticism. Are New Critics bricoleurs?

Do you think that his method of analysis reveals any hidden elements to the narrative? Do you think any aspect of the narrative received less attention that it might have during a New Critical reading? Which mode do you think is more suited to the text?
