I have to write a poetry analysis paper. I do not know how to start the first paragraph. Do I startwith telling the teacher what I'm writing on and then go into the different parts or should i take another approach?

I'll give you some of the best links I've found. The first ones are about writing introductions. The second set is about writing about poetry.

A good way to start an introductory paragraph is a sentence that will grab the reader's attention. Then go into the different parts.

This site has a good example and explanation of an introductory paragraph.
