Poetry Analysis Description of Assignment: A literary analysis essay pulls apart a piece of writing to examine its technique and understand its themes and ideas. For this assignment, you will write an analytical essay, no less than 1000 words (with an additional works cited page that includes your two poems as primary sources and at least two secondary sources), that analyzes, compares and contrasts how the poems use two or more of the poetic devices on the Poetic Devices Glossary worksheet (we will address this soon). It will be important to use appropriate terminology in your analysis. Organization: The introduction should focus on the poetic device you will be analyzing in the poems, not necessarily the poets or history of the poems, although a little background on the authors can be helpful in the introduction. Your thesis should focus on the poetic devices you will analyze in the poems. The body should examine different ways the poetic devices show up in the poems; for instance, if you were focusing on theme, then you may look at the way the theme is expressed in symbols, imagery, structure, tone, etc. In addition, the body should help us see what is to be gained by comparing and contrasting the poems’ unique take on your chosen poetic devices. Spend less time on the historical context of the poem or the author. Avoid analyzing one poem separately from the other. Organize the paper point-by-point (more on that in class). The conclusion should restate your thesis and examine any new understandings that arise from analyzing the poems. What should we take with us about the themes? What have you uncovered in these texts that is worth remembering? What do we gain by analyzing the same poetic devices in two different poems?

Literary Analysis: Home Is So Sad” by Philip Larkin, and ‘’Author to Her Book’’ by Anne
"Home Is So Sad” by Philip Larkin, and ‘’Author to Her Book’’ by Anne Bradstreet are
poems which have explored various literary devices to bring about their themes and also aspects
of musicality in the poems. Philip Larkin is an eminent writer based in postwar England and was
a nationally recognized poet who was referred to as the ‘’England’s other Poet Laureate’’ until
his death in 1985. On the other hand, Anne Bradstreet’s poem is all about her book, ‘’Tenth
Muse’’ which was published in America without her permission and knowledge and through the
poem, she acts as if the book was her child who was taken from its safety zone and exposed to
the universe before it was ready (Larkin, 444). The two poets have however demonstrated
different literary devices in their works including personifications, tones, and metaphors.
Typically, while Anne Bradstreet personifies the book as a child, uses imagery and
diction to show her insecurities of her work as well as the metaphor of the child. Philip Larkin is
also categorical in personifying the house together with its objects through the use of melancholy
as well as detached tones to demo...
