How to ... Analyze a Poem

Here follows a step-by-step method to analyze a poem. 

The following maps work clockwise. Their starting point can easily be found: the yellow bubble containing the word "Title". 

The map on the left contains the main points you have to discuss when analyzing a poetic text. The map on the right is an 'expanded' map in which the rectangular bubbles represent the key points of a textual analysis. The oval bubbles help you expand your analysis. It is as if the oval bubbles were questions. 

The ebook Steps to analyze a poem describes in detail the different stages to follow. Questions are provided to help you understand what each element really corresponds to.
