How should I structure my essay?

Your essay should consist of an introduction, three (or four) pragraphs of analysis, and a conclusion

In your introduction, you should present your thesis statement (what the essay is about/arguing) and give the name(s) of the author(s) and text(s) you will be examining. In addition, you should name 3 techniques that the author uses, and explain the overall effect of the tecqniques. 

In the main body of your essay, you should aim to write three paragraphs of textual analysis. Each paragraph should include the following information:

* Name of technique;

* Quote from the primary text to support your point;

* Detailed analysis of its effect. 

Be sure to include a linking statement at the end of each paragraph to ensure coherency. 

In your conclusion you should say something new or pose a question which will stay in the mind of your reader.
