A comparison of 3 poems

The 3 poems that I will be looking at and comparing are “The ruined maid”, “They flee from me” and “Since there’s no help”.

The mood in “they flee from me” is quite sad and upset, the following quote tells us this, “Into a strange fashion of forsaking.” The mood is also the same in,”Since there’s no help.” We can tell this from the following quote, “Since there’s no help, come, let us kiss and part. The mood in the 3rd poem is a little bit the same, but it tends to be more depressed than the other 2 poems. We can tell this from the following quote. “O didn’t you know I’d been ruined?”  

The rhyme in each poem is different to the others.

The only poem to have any dialogue in it, out of the three that I have studied is “The ruined maid”. The dialogue in this poem is between two friends that have met in the street and are discussing who much one of them has changed after becoming ruined.

The structure in “The ruined maid” is basicaly six verses and each verse is another part in their conversation. In “They flee from me” there are three large verses in which something else about love or past lovers is said. In the last poem I studied, “Scince theres  no help” there is one large verse and then a small one at the end.

The most complex poem whould have to be “They flee from me” it uses a complex langue some times, with words like “newfangleness”. “Scince theres no help” is not very complex and uses a simple languae. “The ruined maid” is slightly complex, as it uses old dorsit type words like “thikoon”.

The only poem that is old fashined is “the ruined maid” we can tell this because in one verse the word “megrims” is said, this was the old word for migrams.  

All of these poems have a few features of them the same as the other ones, but in some cases there are big differancese, for example “The ruined maid” has a few things the othe poems don’t, like dialogue and repatition.
