Context in English literature essays

Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how best to both revise and incorporate context into literature essays, I seem to struggle with it - particularly specific contexts about a vast array of poets in an anthology
Make some brief summary notes. Find some of the common recurring central themes. Read the poems carefully and highlight the key parts. Understand what exactly the question is asking and pay close attention to the full number of marks which is given for the whole question.
