Unseen Poetry

Hi, I have an exam in unseen poetry tomorrow and I am not sure on the structure of how you would write your answer. Is this a good structure?

Introduction of Poem A

Point about poem A
Compare to Poem B

Point about poem A
Compare to Poem B

Point about poem A
Compare to Poem B

Point about poem A
Compare to Poem B
Hey there!
Yeah, that structure works!
Another thing you could do is try and find similarities between the two poems and discuss them, and then discuss the differences.
Or could you try and structure it thematically if there's enough themes in the poems to do that.
Remember to try and include a bit of context too. But don't go overboard with it-you want to focus more on the poems themselves than the context :smile:

Good luck tomorrow!

YES! this is a fair poem structure but you need careful on how you introduce one point to the other. Also you should consider how the points interlink so as to have a smooth flow of the poem. For more information about poems visit https://fleekpapers.com/
