Ok, I don't know if anyone can help me with this sort of thing or not but I'm desperate and hoping that it will give me a start anyways. Basically, I have to write a comparitive essay on poetry. I have to pick two poems from different genres with regard to the thematic impact of their representation of the relationship between human and natural worlds using specific aspects of genre, structure, and figures of speech in the argument. I've always had trouble with more formal writing, but this is the first time I've had to write an essay on poems. Is it any different than comparing stories in an essay? I just really don't know how to go about it?
