Be original. No body can fault your own personal interpretation of something, as long as it makes sense and relates to the theme of the text, in this case: power/weakness, loneliness, dreams and aspirations. A B Grade student can pick out obvious things in the text and expand on them. An A to A* student can do this but also find less obvious aspects of the text.

Probably the best thing you can do is buy a revision guide.

Be creative and really explore the text, look for use of devices and how it enriches the text and what affect it has on the plot and the readers' interpretation.x
