  2. An analogy is a comparison between two different things.

    http://literarydevices.net/analogy/

    Sandburg compares the Civil War to a long voyage. Frost compares the fork in path in the woods to a decision.

  3. Actually, Frost compares the woods to life. The two paths represent decisions made to take one road, and not the other road.

  4. "O Captain..." was by Whitman, not Sandburg, but, yes, the analogy is that the Civil War was a sea voyage and Mr. Lincoln was the captain of the ship.
