Good essay practice should include: In your plan you should identify very clearly around six distinct points you intend to make and the specific parts of the text that you intend to examine in some detail.

Introduction This should be brief; you could include what your main view is and what other ideas you have. Don't list the poems or ideas you are going to include in the rest of your essay as you will be repeating yourself.
Try to begin by addressing the question straight away. Paragraphing Make sure you use them as it makes your writing clearer for you and the examiner. When writing your essay you should devote one or two paragraphs to each idea from your plan. Try to make smooth links between paragraphs.
Evidence When you make a point - you must give evidence to prove it. When you make a point, refer to the text and give an example to back up what you say.
