In an English Literature essay, would you be able to get away with two long paragraphs ( a page and more) instead of 3 normal ones?

As long as they’re good and not rambling then I don’t see why not. I did 2 paragraphs my Inspector calls essay and got a decent mark

Depends on the question. I think it's best to organise your paragraphs by argument, if there are 2 main ones then make two paragraphs.

As long as you still cover a variety of arguments, two paragraphs would be okay. However, if there are many different arguments in your paragraphs, it'd be better to split them up

Basically, as long as you write enough to cover the whole text/extract, you'll be getting top marks
