I start off with the form of both poems in seperate paragraphs and how that links to an aspect of the question, i then analyse each poem in relation to the question in seperate paragraphs, including language and structure , i conclude my drawing a major similarity in terms of the characters and my own response :D my friend does both poems in the same paragraph but i find that slightly confusing, anyway good luck and hope the exam is good for both of us!
