English Lit, Analyse poems Watch
One of my subjects is English Literature. We have to anaylse a poem, we have been given a general idea of what to do
However i love clarity, will someone tell me exactly how to anaylse a poem? I want things to be crystal clear. I believe a big part of English Lit is reading between the lines.
So if anyone is a whiz on this subject, if you have a list or template you would kindly share with me, telling me what i need to do, I would really appreciate it
Check through the poem to see if you can find any of those, and then once you've spotted one, consider its effect on the poem: what does it do to the mood? Does it tell you more about the subject? Does it make the poem flow more easily, or break it up, and if so, why did the poet choose to do that? Don't forget to look at form and structure too. The way a poem is divided into lines and stanzas is a great thing to talk about in an essay.
It stands for Form/structure , Language , Imagery , Rhythm & Rhyme and Tone. If you add all those things then that should be enough to cover your analysis. Hope that makes sense ) it may be helpful look at contextual information so basically researching the Poet and they’re life and what they were writing about. However you might not have to do this because we studied two Poets over the course of the year whereas you may only have to analyse this one singular poem.
