Extracts from this document...


ROOPAL DHANOTA 9 JUNE 01 A COMPARISON OF "THE SONG OF THE WHALE" AND " A BLACK RABBIT CIES FOR ITS COUNTRY" In my essay, I am going to compare the poems, 'The Song of the Whale' by Kit Wright, and 'A Black Rabbit Dies for its Country' by Gavin Edwart.

The rabbit talks about how he has never seen the outside world, he tells us how he has been experimented on. There are also some differences between the two poems.
