Writing a good comparative essay
All essay questions expect you to comment on the areas covered in Writing about poetry.
This means you must write about the use of language, the effect of language and form,
and how it makes you feel.
A good comparative essay is like a multi-layered sandwich:
BREAD – A new point.
FILLING A – How one of your chosen poems illustrates this point.
FILLING B – How your other chosen poem illustrates this point.
BREAD – Your conclusion about this point.
This is what the examiners call cross-referencing – you talk about both poems all the way through your answer.
