  1. Analogy is comparing two things to give the reader a clear understanding. Knowing this, read the two poems and find what is being compared in each... The Road Not Taken compares the fork in the road to life choices and how her makes those choices and what he chooses. O Captain! My Captain! compares the ship to America and the Captain to Abraham Lincoln. It talks about how he was close to the captain and after the storm (war) everyone is cheering for Abe but he is dead because in real life he was assassinated
