While answering English literature questions, use present tense writing as it is often easier to read and can help make your statements sound more confident. Although the poem or novel that you're discussing may have been written a long time ago, you're really describing what the literature means to you today.
The rule is talk about the text in present tenses, but if you shift focus to talking about yourself or history, you may need past tenses for that part. Remember to go back to present tenses as soon as you are talking about the text again.
