Comparision of Poems

Comparision of Poems

Final Out of Class Paper

I choose topic one for the final paper. I picked 15 poems from McClure?s Magazine from the years of 1918 and 1920. Some quick generalizations about the published poems are that they are rather short compared to the literary work in the Norton Anthology. Another generalization is that they tend to rhyme where as most of the lines in the poems Norton Anthology tend to just flow without rhyming. Another generalization about the poems from 1918 is that most of them are about war or have something to do with the topic of war. Most of the poems from 1920 have to do with nature. The published poems are short and easy to read. Also, they are easy to understand. What the poem is talking about is clearly stated and easy to find out. The poems in the Norton Anthology are somewhat longer than published poems. These poems are about stuff the poet is thinking about, they have no common interest. The various poems by the various poets do not have a common theme. Also, the poems in the Norton Anthology are difficult to understand.
