well our teacher says... to write the essays like this...:

opening sentence
breifly explain what each poem is about
talk about the structure of each poem - e.g. stanzas
talk about the imagery used - best choose at least three examples, that you can compare well.
(conclusion)

and always use PEE (Point Example Explanation)

i used this in a timed essay i did in class and i got a B+, and i didnt even finish the essay.

Themes

- Group the ideas
- What is the poem about?

Imagery

- Metaphors or similies?
- Use of the five senses?

Form and Structure

- How it's organised (lines, verses, layout)
- Why it is structured this way

Rhyme and Rhythm

- What is the rhyme scheme? (abab etc)
- What is the rhythm when read? (Tip: Do not read aloud in exam room)
- Why is this rhythm used?

Language Patterns

- Sound of poems and choice of words
- Alliteration, Onomatopoeia, assonance, eprsonification, symbolism
- What is the effect of these aptterns?

Poet's Message

- What is the poet trying to say?
- How effective are the devices and language used?

It really depends on the question just make sure you plan and if you compare aspects of the poem e.g Structure at the same time you get more marks that comparing all aspects in one poem and then all aspects in another.

Well if for example you see a distinct pattern or repition in some vowel sounds it could mean that the poet is trying to link ideas like how alliteration links ideas together. If you get what i'm saying o_O It's not the best description but i can't find any example in the poems i have

I know this is probs too late but my teacher told us to use the following pneumonic:

Smelly Toes Leave My Feet Itchy

Smelly - Structure
Toes - Themes
Leave - Language
My - Message
Feet - Form
Itchy - Impact on you

Hope this helps!
Gud luck to you all!
