Comparative Poetry Analysis

Shyla Woods Hour 5

Introduction

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." I will be comparing and contrasting "Prayer to the Pacific" and "Tornado at Taledaga". My elements for analysis will be Tone and Word Choice, Figurative Language, and Structure and Form.

Conclusion

The main points of my analysis were Tone and Word Choice, Figurative Language, and Structure and Form. The authors style affected the poems a lot by being able to show that you should be able to show feelings not just to people but to nature too. In "Tornado at Taladega" I think the over all theme is that showing empathy for the things that are affected by the storm is not bad. In "Prayer to the Pacific" I think the over all theme is to respect the ocean just as if it was person.
