I am going to compare two of them. I will call one poem A and one poem B, A is called �The seduction� written in the 20th century. B is called �Cousin Kate� written in the 19th century. A is about a girl who goes to a party looking for love. She has got her expectations of love from magazines and it is this romantic view of teenage love that betrays her. She meats some one who just uses her for sex. Then she is at home after she finds out she is pregnant and she dose not know what to do about it. Poem B is about a woman who has slept with and loved a lord and had his baby, and then he left her and married her cousin. But she can�t have children. The teller is really proud of her son, and knows that in a way she is the winner. In poem A the speaker is the girl and she really dose not know what to do. She is ashamed of what she has done; she thinks that people are Pointing at her as she is walking down the streets. In poem B the speaker is a Cottage Maiden she is the cousin of Kate. ...read more.

The cottage maiden refers to this when she says, �Even so I sit and howl in dust. You sit in gold and sing.� As she emphasizes how Kate has risen up the class ladder. Each poem uses distinct rhythm. Poem A uses rhythm of normal speech e.g. �she had nodded, quite enchanted, and her eyes were wide and bright. As he enthused about the Milk Cup, and the next McGuigan fight.� It is as if the rhythm reflects the automatic way the boy is chatting up his latest conquest at the party. The rhythm makes it sound like that to. Poem B the most repetition and rhythm is when she says �My fair-haired son, my shame, my pride, Cling closer, closer yet: your father would give lands for one to wear his coronet.� This reflects her desperation and the comfort from the child. The poems use imagery to set the scene. In poem A the writer says things like �the Mersey, green as a septic wound.� When talking about the place in which the girl was seduced. It has a very urban gritty feel to it. In poem B the writer uses phrases like �a silken knot� and uses the image of a dove. This conveys richness and loveliness. Suggesting that there love affair while it lasted was something special. ...read more.
