    Literature requires understanding the writer’s intentions and the impact they create. Commenting on structure is crucial, also comment on message/ content, themes, tone, sounds, words/ language used.You can read the mark scheme to understand in depth what exactly the examiner is looking for. :P

    A good structure to use for your paragraph is:
    P - Point E - Evidence
    E – Explain
    E - Explain further -try and give further interpretations of the language used

    Be sure to compare the texts well, find their similarities are differences, use phrases like “both texts use..”, “In comparison, text A”, “On the other hand, text A”, “Similarly,text A..”. Also, this isn’t really compulsory for literature, but you could state what devices are being used, such noun, verb, adjective, even pathetic fallacy,don't worry if you're not sure what it is, but if you do come across a device you know, it would be useful to include it. Make sure you show that you can understanding the meaning of the text and the aims of the writer, meaning context would be good to include.

    Hope this helps

    Every one of my days,
    Surrounded by baes,
    I bet you're jealous of my ways.

    Edit: oh wait you want advice? Look for connotations, analyze specific words, PEE, etc.
    Now adieu.

    because you don't write anything based on conclusive evidence or facts, it's just "what you think the correct interpretation is" so thus everyone can be right >.> so it's bullsh*t

    Which is why I said “try and give further interpretations of the language used”...
