Student in first year of English Literature course here. I'm having trouble with an essay and before I go any further, yes this is a shameless cry for help, but if any of you are kind enough to give me a hand here, I'd appreciate it greatly.

I have an essay due in about Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. The main idea is to write about how Shakespeare presents the ending of it as a harmonious contrast to the chaotic 'green world' at the center. After doing one draft, I was told to write less about what happens in the story and more about how it is presented and the methods Shakespeare used, with more quotes to prove that.

There's my problem. I have no idea how to go about doing that and it's too late to ask my tutor about it, which is why I'm here. You don't have to do the entire essay for me, and I'm certainly not asking that. I'm just asking for tips or advice, just a pointer to get me started even, because as of right now I don't have a single point to make and don't know how to go about formulating one.
