Hey guys,

I need a little bit of help with my poetry presentation for English Lit!

I have all of the detailed stuff covered but I am stuck with the basic question of which form the following two poems are. (For example lyrical ballad etc)


The two poems I'm studying are:

The Flea - John Donne

http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/175764


Sex Without Love - Sharon Olds

http://famouspoetsandpoems.com/poets...ds/poems/19521


I'm doing a comparison on the two, and have gone into quite a lot of detail but one of the questions relates to identifying the poetic form. I know for instance that the one by Sharon Olds is in Free Verse, but that's about it! I'm unsure what actual form its called!


Thanks for any help!
