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
