Poem Comparison Essay One place to start when writing about poetry is to look at any significant themes that emerge in the poetry. Does the poetry deal with themes related to love, death, sickness, inspiration, beauty? Any other concepts? What other themes show up in the poem? Are there particular historical events that are mentioned in the poem? Or ”alluded” to [allusion]? What are the most important concepts that are addressed in the poem and how does the poet work these themes out, stanza by stanza? Figures of speech: Are there literary devices being used that affect how you read the poem? Here are some examples of commonly discussed figures of speech [see chapters 14, 15, 16]: Symbols: where are the symbols and what do they represent, specifically?
Symbol: an object or event that suggests something beyond its literal meaning. Metaphor: comparison between two unlike things—using a vehicle to represent a concept. Simile: comparison between two unlike things using "like" or "as" Metonymy: one thing stands for something else that is closely related to it (For example, using the phrase "the crown" to refer to the king would be an example of metonymy, or “White House” for government.)
