My teacher has set an essay question for us in which we're expected to analyse 4 poems; 2 by Philip Larkin (Self's The Man and Mr Bleaney), and 2 by Carol Ann Duffy (The Windows and Room). I have only ever done a 2 poem analytical essay before and I don't really know where to start with 4. Could somebody please help me structure it, my teacher hasn't given any help with structure.
The question is:
Larkin and Duffy 'create characters who are largely unsympathetic'. Analyse the following poems in relation to this statement: Self's the Man/Mr Bleaney/Room/The Windows.Focus on the themes of loneliness/isolation/loss and change that are explored in the poems.
Should I still go?
