How to compare poems?

  • 0 votes

What is the best way to compare poems within the anthology (AQA).

Poems include:

The clown punk, checking out me history, Horse whisperer, Medusa, Singh song, Brendon Gallacher, Give, Les grands seigneurs, Ozymandias, My last duchess, The river god, The hunchback in the park, The ruined maid,  Casehistory: Alison ( head injury) and On a portrait of a deaf man.

What are the key factors to look at when identifying poems? And when in the exam do I know which poem is suitable to compare with another poem??

I would start with looking at a similarity with a theme- then look at the techniques the author has used to show this theme.

Then look at a similar technique and then either a similar or different effect of this theme.

Then compare structure and the effect of the structure
