Now lead into a detailed paragraph COMPARING AND CONTRASTING the IMAGERY of the poems, by pointing out THEIR SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES

 

COMPARE AND CONTRAST THE LANGUAGE, by pointing out THEIR SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES – comment on one or two poetic devices that really stand out to you in the poem

 

COMPARING AND CONTRASTING THE STRUCTURE, by pointing out THEIR SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES – (rhyme, rhyming couplets, rhythm, syllables, punctuation)
