The following question asks about one or more selections from your textbook Literature. You may use your textbook to answer this question. Both “The Road Not Taken” and “O Captain! My Captain!” are analogies. Write a paragraph comparing the authors’ use of analogy. What is analogy? How does Frost use analogy in his poem? How does Whitman use analogy in his poem? Why has each of these analogy poems become so famous?

An analogy is when two things are being compared. For example "O Captain! My Captain" is an analogy because the poem is being compared to the Civil War.

I don't know what analogy "The Road not Taken" is


HELP!

  1. Is Frost talking about a real fork in the road, or is he talking about a life choice? If one has to make a choice, say, going to college or not, what would life be like if the other choice had been made? The "road" not taken. And, in the Whitman poem, the ship the captain has led through the storm is the ship of state, the Union, and the storm is the Civil War.

    You take it from there.
