Comparative Poetry Analysis

Katherine Panzer Hour 3

introduction

Have you ever read a poem and wondered what the author's tone was? Or how they used figurative language? Or maybe how their poem was structured? In the poems "Problems with Hurricanes" by Victor Hernandez Cruz and "Tornado at Talledega" by Gwendolyn Brooks all those questions will be answered.

Conclusion

The author's tone, word choice, type of figurative language, form, and structure all affect how their poem feels and flows. I believe that the overall meaning of the poem "Problems with Hurricanes" is that you should expect the unexpected. I also believe that the overall meaning of the poem "Tornado at Talledega" is that storms are powerful and they do not care what they crush in their path.
