- When we write a literary study response, we need to try to avoid just describing each poem in turn – we need to be COMPARATIVE in our approach.
- One good way to do that is through thematic analysis, where our structure is based on a paragraph per theme, and we explore each poem in that paragraph.
Using your knowledge of the poems we have studied so far, compile notes on how each poem explores the following themes:
- The Sublime
- Nihilism (obsession with nothingness)
- Dissolution of the Self
