Are you looking for help with what points to make ? If so, I'd recommend Mr Bruff on Youtube or Seneca Learning (https://app.senecalearning.com/class...4-f9cf15791499) - they both offer similar analysis and it's decent. Just depends whether you want it written down (seneca) or to watch a video (Mr Bruff)

At my school we learnt an mnemonic called WPSLOMP.
W - What is the poem about?
P - Perspective. Who is the speaker? What point of view is it in? How do we know this?
S - Structure. How many lines does it have? How many stanzas does it have? Does it include techniques such as an iambic pentameter of enjambment?
L - Language. What techniques has the writer used to convey language, such as similies, methaphors etc.
OM -Other methods. Basically another language technique.
P - Person opinion. What did you think of the poem? Did you think it was effective at conveying the message that it was supposed to? What is it meant to make the reader feel?

If you write one long essay using this format, and write one paragraph a letter comparing both poems, I think that’ll get you a good grade

you need to look at the language and structure. both are about the power of man and nature so you need to look at how this power is presented eg. in exposure the personification 'merciless iced east winds that knive us' shows the power of nature and in eftp you have 'a huge peak, black and huge'- the repetition of huge shows the man has lost his ability to articulate and only emphasises the scale of the mountain.
