Poetry is a lot more than just cleverly arranged stylistic devices, surrounded by poetic language. Different people can look at the same poem and have completely different, sometimes even conflicting interpretations which may be valid at the same time, provided they can be backed up. Remember than nothing in a poem can be considered accidental. It can be helpful to look at stylistic devices, themes or other aspects you find relevant to help you establish your point when you analyse a poem. These tasks based on Shakespeare’s most famous sonnet can help you get started on that.
