I find that I really struggle understanding how to analyse a piece of text as I am not able to come up with ideas of any sort and when looking at a piece of text, I just see it how it is. Could someone help me?

Don't worry about identifying things like simile and metaphor. This is not analysing a text: it is simply identifying features of language!

Before you analyse a text, you need to understand it.

Therefore, focus your efforts on understanding what a text is about.

Do you have a specific text in mind? Maybe I can ask you some questions on it to see how well you understand it.

For example, Romeo and Juliet, I really don’t understand what they’re saying at all. I don’t know how to either. If that makes sense

Shakespeare is quite hard to grasp what he is trying to say. I personally had a modern translated version at the side which helped me a lot
