Literature questions should usually be answered in the present tense because it is always present to the characters in the story.
Literature questions are answered in the present because literature is considered art, and one always speaks of art in the present tense to acknowledge that it is "alive". Or at least, it speaks to us as if it were, and its relevance spans generations. Even if the author of a text is long dead, the words and actions happen in an eternal present.
