Hello, my English exam is in a couple of weeks and I need help on how to analyse poetry when writing a critical essay. I can explain the quote clearly but I really struggle to go fully in depth when analysing it. Can I get some help please?

Some points to think about:
-Do you use word level analysis of the quote?
-Include context of the poem in the essay (not sure if this is needed for higher English?)
-Analyse the effectiveness of the quote
-Think about the impact of the poem/quote on the reader
-Use technical language (eg. Say the noun...suggests rather than the word... shows)
Hope that gives you some ideas

Hey, do you have any poetry essays that you've done? If so, feel free to send them to me and I can have a look at them. I'm happy to offer you advice/critique etc.
