Cut out superfluous words and phrases. You've probably be given some sort of reference model to use, such as "Point Evidence Explanation" or similar. As dumb as it sounds if you need to make your essay more concise and not "over complicated" then quite simply you need to write concisely and not over complicate things. If you have a point, make that point. Don't then go off on a tangent point unless it's relevant and feeds well into your essay.
When you're writing about something, you'll have a point that you're trying to make. Determine how it is you will make that point, the evidence you will use, etc. then write it. Make your point and move on. With the above PEE model, pick a point, pick some evidence, write an explanation. Don't then pick some more evidence and some more explanation and some more evidence and so on. Stop when you've made your point.
The irony in this answer; it can be simplified down. Make a point and move on, cut out the superfluous stuff.

E-(dont't have to)but expand that quote, pick on little words and what the convey
L-Link it to the wider meaning, like adding contextual evidence to back up your point and what it conveys. However, you could in turn link the point to a different quote in that same theme and then repeat the same process.
Write about 3 paragraphs and do that in every paragraph and you'll get near full marks, because you'll be ticking all the assessment objectives! Good-luck!!
