Quotes & how to use them

The 3 rules of quote inclusion:

  • Work the quote into a sentence, don’t just add them on the end.

      • Better: Henry admits that he"was blown up while eating cheese", demonstrating the absurdity of...
  • Give context to a quote - who said it, what was happening?
      • OK: The quote “all thinking men are atheists” shows Hemingway’s underlying beliefs...
      • Better: The Major persists in baiting the Priest at dinner, insisting that “all thinking men are atheists”. His claim betrays Hemingway’s underlying beliefs...
  • Convey the tone of the quote - use vocabulary to express the underlying tone.
      • OK: When Catherine is dying, Henry says “that was what you did. You died.”

answering the question
Answering the question
  • "There is nothing worse than war." 'This is a story about war and its effects on human beings.' Discuss.
  • Henry is depicted as an atheist, aimless in his actions and concerned more about where to get his next drink than where his life is heading: “I believe we should get the war over”.

Introducing & concluding
  • Introduction is just that - you should be introducing the reader to your argument: give them a heads up on what you’re about to discuss, but don’t give it all away! Also, make sure what you’re discussing is relevant to the essay question.
  • A conclusion looks very similar to an introduction, but the reader knows what you’ve talked about now, so you can make your statements bolder. Tell them what you think (be confident with it!), and sign off strongly. Your last sentence should be the pièce de résistance - the best bit!
