In English literature A-Level, I am studying Crime and Tragedy.
We are currently doing Othello, and I have a question about the structure.
When you are given a statement about the text, you must form an argument and argue this throughout the essay. However, are you supposed to introduce the OPPOSITE argument, and if so...how and where?

In RE A-level I know that you have to incorporate the other argument within the same paragraph so that it is a back and forth debate, but I'm not sure if we are supposed to do the same thing in English Lit?

Please help

I tend to only introduce an opposing argument if you disagree with the statement, and instead have 3 sub arguments supporting an overarching one. The better essays tend to use critical quotes to aid their own arguments.
Hope this helps

Depends on the essay and the command one.
