    Default Question on starting an essay

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I've got an assay to write for my A2 English Literature homework. The question is "comment on Act 1 Scene iii," text: "As you like it." Could you tell me how to begin the essay, please?

    What do you want to say about the scene?

    A useful way to open an essay is to give a summary or preview of what it is the rest of the essay will reveal.
