Hey guys,

I'm stuck trying to answer this question;

Explore the ways in which melancholy is presented in ‘Stanzas Written’ by Percy Bysshe Shelley and one other poem.

I want to compare it to Keats' Ode on Melancholy but I don't know what my main points would be and how to compare them.

For Keats poem, I was thinking of splitting it into 3 points based on each stanza
s1- what not to do and the feelings of melancholy
s2 Keats as a visionary figure and how to deal with Melancholy using nature
s3 embracing melancholy as it inevitably disappears

However for Shelley's poem I only really have 2 points which could be made into one
1- Nature won't help with his melancholy
2- He looks for peace of mind and 'inward glory' in nature but can't find it.

I feel like there's something missing and that there is not enough to write about also I don't know what kind of line of argument I would use for this sort of essay.

Any help will be appreciated.
