There is no question that the poems you have read these past two weeks vary widely with respect to the poetsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ use of the poetic elements of "speaker," "situation," and "setting."
Your written assignment for this week is to compare and contrast the ways in which two poets you have read rely on these elements to create a unique effect on the reader. Who is speaking? What is going on? Where? When? How do the two poems compare?
Your goal is to write a 1-2 page comparison and contrast essay. Be focused and specific in order to stay within this page range. Use sample poems to illustrate your statements. Cite your sources.
