    essay

    What should I say If I am writing an essay and want to move from one point to another (different) one?

    I mean for example:

    The theme of love is clearly highlighted through........................................... ...................
    .................................................. .................................................. ..............


    The theme of appearance versus reality .................................................. ................
    .................................................. .................................................. ...........



    so what can I put before the first sentence in the second paragraph which begins with "The theme of appearance versus reality"?

    Can I say "Regarding to" or "As for"? If so, what else?

    Re: essay

    The use of "As for" above is correct. However, we would say "Regarding the theme of...", not "Regarding to the theme of..."
