Blessings of Growth Leon Enriquez’s “Blessings” is a fantastic poem with a very different wordplay pattern to it. The word that is used to end each line is also the word sued to start each line, “Dawns to a play, Play that fits morn.” for example. The poem is quite confusing, and looks like a lot of repeated words that sound sophisticated, but there is a strong meaning in such a hard criteria of beginning each line with the word of the last line.
The stories both involve in the wilderness. The “sound of thunder” had a lot of traveling in it. In the story “being prey” they had a lot of water, swamps. In the “sound of thunder” the machine stops working. In “being prey” the river over flows.
They both were untouched by humans. The predators were crocodiles in “Being Prey”. In “The Sound of Thunder” the predator was a T-Rex. They both have many differences and similarities, which make the stories somewhat the same.
Last, is that one is very long and the other is very short. They are similar because there both in the same time and setting. Therefore, Drummer Boy Shiloh and Drumbeats and Bullets are similar and different. The two stories are different because there written by different authors.
Have you ever been hunted or wondered what it would be like to be hunted, well Richard Connell the author of The Most Dangerous Game has exercised this idea into a short story. Rainsfords external conflict with zaroff, and his view on animals and how they change throughout the story, and being hunted by zaroff, then the change of his view on animals reveal that humans are more like animals than we realize.

In “A Sound of Thunder” Eckels faces a dinosaur and in “Being Prey”, Plumwood faces a crocodile. Both places are natural places. Neither one has been touched by humans.
The poem and folktale The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson and Abuelito Who are similar and different in plenty of ways. One is about someone who is mistreated and one is about someone who dies. One has a narrator and one is told by the granddaughter. Those are just some of the differences.

Nature and Man have various interactions with one another, some good and some bad, but both rely on each other to thrive. “A Narrow Fellow in the Grass” by Emily Dickinson, and “The Snake” by Wendell Berry both share similar experiences between man and snake, an animal of nature. These poems had differences in their way of telling the experience/story, but also had some similarities in other aspects.

There is nothing more beautiful than the human language. Words that flow off of the tongue like honey bring readers to a place of tranquility. Words are comparable to a Vincent van Gogh painting: complex but simplistic. Anne Sexton uses the work of Brother Grimm to create her own dazzling work of confessional poetry in Transformations. Her poem entitled “Rumpelstiltskin” uses figurative language such as similes and allusions to enhance the imagery of her poems and transform these short stories into confessional poetry.
