Poetry: Comparative Close Reading

Using the annotations you and your classmates developed in Module 11 Poetry: Annotations, identify two different poems where you see at least some commonality or difference (use of tone; images; rhyme; subject matter; theme; speaker’s attitude etc.).

Do a close reading where you quote from each poem and explore that commonality or difference. See An Introduction to Close Reading for a refresher.
