Well it's the part where you use the theories you mentioned in the literature review, and base them on your data and compare/contrast, prove disapprove etc.

what subject are you doing it on?

alright so it seems as though you have a central thesis about the influence? i.e a central idea you will be trying to prove. What you basically will do is try and look into every theory out there by other critics who have studied the subject before, and see the gap in their research (perhaps) which is your thesis. All this will be done in the literature review. What you do in the Analysis, is basically present your argument in depth, with examples, etc. Because you're not actually collecting any data, your analysis will be based on your/other opinions.

...I'm a bit confused :o

Basically you should write your abstract at the end, after you've completed your EE. You should make it into a mini summary of your essay briefly outlining why and what you're going to do, running through all the arguments you made, why you made them and what you concluded from them and then a final conclusion which sums up the answer to your EE. Basically the idea is that somebody could read the abstract instead of your EE and get all the info and arguments from your main EE, just in a few minutes. It's like a mini summary :yes: Look up any paper online or check out 50 Excellent Extended Essays (find these via ;)!) and you should see exactly what an abstract is very quickly -- and also why it's easier to write when you're done with the essay!
