I am doing an English major in university.When I read novels and poems,I have difficulty interpreting the underlying meanings of the texts.How can I improve myself in that?
Also,how can I achieve better marks while writing analytical essays about these novels?

Do more writing, and, especially, do more reading. Also, talk about what you read with other students. Discussing what you have read will help you acquire more understanding of it.

Say, for example:

  • I am an English major at Ball State University.
