Compare and contrast some of the poems from this week's readings. You may compare poems from a single poet, or compare poems across poets. Have a debatable, persuasive claim and focus on specific points of comparison, using the Lesson to guide your structure.
Your essays should be in MLA Style and approximately 1000 words, not including the Work(s) Cited page. As with most academic writing, this essay should be written in third person. Please avoid both first person (I, we, our, etc.) and second person (you, your).
Also, take great care not to plagiarize.
