I've regretted taking English Literature back when applying to Sixth Form, but it is far too late to cry over spilt milk.
Right now, my priority is to get at least a B for my final A-level exams. Coursework is all nice and dandy, with prediction that I will get an A, but exams and essays are my Achilles' Heel.
Whether it be comparing poetry, prose, or analysing stagecraft within drama, I have struggled and tend to achieve a C at best. My essay writing in other subjects - History and Sociology - is great, which simply frustrates me more that English does not work out.
How in heavens do you wonderful people structure your essays? Are there any websites which you refer to for help? How to interweave comparison in Prose/Poetry, and Critics' views in Drama? Also, how do you revise for English Literature exams, whilst there are so few facts to know?
Thank you deeply in advance.

Hi, sorry you didn't get a response quicker.
With poetry, you can write annotations and circle words and say what it means or what the author is trying to portray. You can search for the quotes online to find what certain phrases or words mean as well.
