Hi
I need to do a critical analysis on one thematic aspect of Kenneth Koch's "One train may hide another" and I'm totally clueless. Any ideas?

    If you concentrate on ONE theme in the poem and then follow all the directions on this webpage, you'll do just fine.

    Yes.

    Read the poem. Figure out what it is trying to say, and evaluate whether or not the author met his purpose, or what could have been done better.

    Then put those thoughts on paper. You might even compare what the author said and how he said it to others with a similar message before him. Yes, great works stand on the shoulders of giants before.
