Comparative Poetry Analysis

Weston Fields Hour 3


There are many poems about nature, but two good ones are Ode to Enchanted Light and Problems with Hurricanes. Ode to Enchanted light describes the light in a forest. Problems with Hurricanes is about fruit in a hurricane. I will be comparing and contrasting these two poems on their tone and word choice, figurative language, and form and structure.


In conclusion, while both poems have similar structure and a similar attitude toward nature, they are different relating to figurative language. Ode to Enchanted Light has much, while Problems with Hurricanes has very little. The meaning of Problems with Hurricanes is that harmless things, like fruit, can be deadly in the right circumstances. The main point of Ode to Enchanted Light is that nature is beautiful and we should respect it.
