Make thematic links between the poems or compare the poet's messages in their poems.

Make thematic links between the poems or compare the poet's messages in their poems.
can I do both? And is it like so both poems present the idea of power however this one presents it as blah blah blah and the other presents it as blah blah. then I would analysis one poem as if it was by itself so I'd say what the writer is presenting power as quotation then analysis then device then link to the other question with a discourse marker "likewise" then repeat for other until I have three paragraphs of comparison. Also, I really struggle on analysis and think that's why I will fail so can you just tell me quickly what you think of my on the spot analysis i just did.

The context is the group just threw stones at another member and then he fell. Tell me what you think. Plus, it's the play dna and also kelleyis the author.

In one of the opening scenes of the play Jan states that she and her group "were just having a laugh" this mplies that their actions were not intended to be anything harmful rather a simple joke not to be taken seriously. However, the pronoun "we" suggests Jan feels a sense of guilt because she was there so therefore is trying to spread the blame onto the group as a whole, because there is strength in numbers. This could be Kelley's way of pointing out that in society mob's and gangs are a real problem because they derail peoples morals and corrupts them. The adverb "laugh" isl inked with the idea of happines and joy, this is a sharp contrast to the reality of the situation were adam is not expressing happiness instead fear and suffering. Perhaps kelley used the word "laugh" to help the reader understand that something may appear as one thing in this case a "laugh" in reality could be something quite cruel and an evil act. In this situation it would be them throwing rocks at Adam until he falls in the pit. Thanks

you can do 50/50 for each poem or 20/80 or 80/20 etc.
you don't have to compare them equally as long as you comment on both and also include structure !!
that's pretty much the only change this year (structure)
it's things like a change of tone (volta) or time(flashbacks like in poppier to her son) etc.
make sure to use the word structure then talk about something like the change in time, repeated motifs or how punctuation affects the poem.
good luck :')
