    For Literature?

    It depends on whether it's a straight analysis essay or a comparison essay

    I'd generally do:
    1. Introduction- quick summary on the themes of the novel and extract in particular
    2. 3 paragraphs on your main points - I used the PETER structure for GCSE (which you can find an explanation of in this post: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3806219
    3. Conclusion- summarise what the author is trying to tell the audience, with the key things you gained from your paragraphs
