Question:

How can I make my argument flow better?

Answer:

To create a stronger argumentative flow, utilize transition phrases between sentences and paragraphs such as "Moreover, Furthermore" to indicate an elaboration/expansion of the argument or "On the other hand, On the contrary" to indicate a counterargument. It's also recommended to draft an essay outline so you can visualize how all your argumentative points connect to one another early on.

Question:

How can I make my literary analysis more detailed?

Inactive

Answer:

Consider the literal meaning of what you are analyzing first, e.g. a line about the weather. Then, think about the significance of this line in the context of the whole text, e.g. how might the weather impact the narrative or the characters? does it invoke a certain emotion or mood that informs our understanding of characters or the story? You can also then tie in any symbolic meaning of what you are analyzing, e.g. if the line is about stormy weather, it could symbolize impending danger. Similarly, you can then connect this symbolic meaning to the larger story to form your analysis.

Question:

How can I make my sentences more concise?

Answer:

Review your sentence from the perspective of a reader and ask yourself if the sentence clearly communicates one main idea to readers. If you find that you have to read through the sentence multiple times to figure out what the main idea is, it probably means your sentence is too lengthy (and thus distracting) and contains too many overlapping ideas. In that case, try to identify the multiple ideas you have in the sentence and break them up into several sentences. You can also use active voice to make your writing and sentences more straightforward.
