    Hi
    URGENT HELP NEEDED!!!

    I have my igcse english literature exam today and im struggling on how is best to answer the poetry question
    Whats the best essay structure? Should you analyse rhyme scheme, structure and punctuation in separate paragraphs? or intwine them with selected quotes and phrases?

    Finally the prose piece. I'm doing Jekyll and Hyde am I best doing 4 really chunky paragraphs or 6 that are small?

    Normally I entwine my structure and punctuation points with my main points...

    Point
    Quote
    Language ( i.e. connotations)
    Technique ( in support of the point you made with the language)
    Link with context (if you haven't already)
    Themes/interpretations
    Link back to the question

    I don't do Jekyll and Hyde, but I'd say doing 4 detailed, high quality paragraphs is better than doing 6 mediocre paragraphs.

    Hope this helps

    So I shouldn't do I separate para about rhyme structure etc just in twine it?
