Choose two poems that are related in theme or form. These could be one of the pairs of poems at the end of chapter 9, two related poems elsewhere in Lit for Comp, or two other related poems you found elsewhere:
Poem 2: Do a little background research about each author: What themes does the first poet often write about? What is their typical poetic style? What themes does the second poet often write about? What is their typical poetic style? Read each poem once for general understanding: What main ideas do you get from the first poem? From the second poem? Read each poem again and annotate it, marking any interesting, unusual, or repeated words, phrases, or sentence structures: What words/phrases stand out in the first poem? Why? If any of these words were changed, how would the tone of the poem change? Who is the speaker of the poem? How can you tell?
