Comparative Poetry Analysis

Paige Hodgson Hour 2

Introduction

Sometimes we think that a poem is what's on the page, but sometimes we have to think deeper. Tone and word choice, figurative language, and structure and form are all in the poems "Problems with Hurricanes" and "Prayer to the Pacific".

Conclusion

Tone and word choice, figurative language, and structure and form are all parts of author's style which help us understand the overall theme and message of poem. "Problems with Hurricanes" is about watching out for the innocent things because they may be dangerous. "Prayer to the Pacific" talks about respecting and taking care of our oceans and nature. Author's style can change a poem in many ways, depending on how they space their lines, what type of tone they use, and the figurative language used could make a poem sad and slow or happy and smooth.
