    Critical analysis of poetry

    Can anyone recommend a site where I may be get some hints about critically analysing poetry, in particular identifying voice, rhythm, metaphor and any other poetic devices? As you may guess, I'm in a blind panic - analyse 'Sonnet written in a church-yard at Middleton in Sussex' by Charlotte Smith in about 1000 words is my current mission in life! Thanks for taking time to read this post everyone.

    maybe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metaphor etc.?

    hmm: "Amusingly, in modern Greek the word metaphor is used to refer to a cart or trolley; thus visitors to Greek airports will find themselves using metaphors to carry their luggage."
    shh!!!
    the air and water have been here a long time, and they are telling stories.

    Metaphor means transfer and not trolley!!! haha. That's why in literature when we say something but we mean something else, we use this word. It's the same aswell in greek as a word for greek literature. Trust me I'm Greek
