The goal of the analysis is to reveal the structure and logic of the poem by showing how its parts are connected in a web of relationships. What are those parts? My document, “Some Notes on Poetry” contains a good list: rhyme, meter, diction, imagery, word order, symbolism, tropes, voice and persona. Together, these make up a whole.
Remember that the word “analysis” means, essentially, “taking apart.” Look at each part in turn and think about its function within the whole. What does it do? How does the imagery (let’s say) enhance the speaker’s persona? How does the metrical arrangement (let’s say) bring out the main metaphor? (I’ll be modelling close analysis in my lectures: you won’t have to invent the process for yourself.)
Remember that the titles of poems, if they are published in a collection, go inside quotation marks.
Remember that in-text citations to a poem mention only the line number or numbers that you quote.
