Longer essays may also contain an introductory page that defines words and phrases of the essay's topic. Most academic institutions require that all substantial facts, quotations, and other porting material in an essay be referenced in a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the text. This scholarly convention helps others (whether teachers or fellow scholars) to understand the basis of facts and quotations the author uses to support the essay's argument and helps readers evaluate to what extent the argument is supported by evidence, and to evaluate the quality of that evidence. The academic essay tests the student's ability to present their thoughts in an organized way and is designed to test their intellectual capabilities.

The thesis statement serves as the foundation of any essay. Feature it prominently in the introduction, as the final sentence. The perspective you chose to take in the introduction drives the thesis statement. Consider your main idea and why it is important. For example, what influence did historical events have on the poem and why are they significant? Alternately, you might choose to answer the question of what the use of personification adds to the poem and why is it significant. To create a strong thesis statement, answer the questions you want to address in one assertive sentence.
