How can I avoid "waffling" when analysing a text?

The approach that I would suggest to any student analysing a text is to use "PEE". This stands for Point, Evidence and Explain and allows your answers to be more focused and ensures that you include as much detail as you can! First, make a point about the text to demonstrate that you can spot certain features. Next, use quotes or data given within the text to provide evidence of the point that you are making. Finally, conclude by explaining your point further, perhaps suggesting why certain features have been included within the text.
