To start a paragraph and maybe to introduce the effect on the reader , because I know how to make a point and how to introduce the evidence but when I have to explain connotations or patterns of the quote I chose , I just don’t know how to

My go to for paragraph starters was and still are at a-level "one way in which/another way in which/conversely, it could be argued that..." Depending on your point you could also use "it is important to note that" in order to introduce a point which opposes the idea of the question or a different aspect of a theme (like inner conflict after talking about physical, stuff like that). When it comes to connotations, make sure you use other terminology too, as mentioning poetic structure and language devices is what really gets you the marks. Connotations are good at complementing those though! For example, it could be something like "This quote has negative connotations of physical conflict relating to the relationship between x and y, exemplified by the pathos that the pathetic fallacy creates in relation to this scene." Idk if that makes sense but if you wanna PM me I can help out!

Also you could use “ this noun / verb / etc has pejorative/ameliorative connotations of .... instead of positive or negative ! Obviously I’m not doing a level yet but maybe that could give you marks , thank you for your tips though!

As someone who got over 95% in GCSE English literature, let me tell you that no sentence starter is 'top grade', at least from what I can remember. Maybe you're looking for something different?
