Some of the greatest poems about racial inequality and its effect are “Sympathy” by Paul Laurence Dunbar and “Caged Bird” by Maya Angelou. Both of these poems are very well written and both of them share some key concepts contextually. For example both birds in their respective poems are able to see the other birds enjoying their freedom. Secondly they are both trapped in cages and are unable to be free and live out their lives without being hindered by the oppressive bars of the cage. Some differences include how the bird in “Sympathy” mutilates himself in an effort to free himself while the bird in “Cage Bird” simply sings for his freedom.
But, the stories are different because of the poetic structure, tame or wild animals, and simple of sophisticated diction. First, the author’s style is similar in “Predators” and “A Blessing”. Both of the poems have sound devices. For example, in “A Blessing” the author repeats the word “they” several times at the beginning of each line, “they ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness” and “they bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other.” In “Predators” the author has an alliteration, “in the trust that many tales spun this tract long before I came.” The sound devices give more details and can help the poem flow better.

Moreover, imagery helps the readers feel like they are standing where the author’ writing is referring to. Moreover, the story “Body Farm” aids readers most in making them feel they can see the picture that Greg is drawing for them. One quote of Greg’s use of vivid description is “The outside fence is chain-link, six feet high…fresh razor wire tangles along its top…backed by…wooden ”modesty“ fence similar to one that…separate your backyard…except that this barrier hides three acres” (Smith 136).
George is described as, “small and quick, dark of face, with restless eyes and sharp, strong features. Every part of him was defined: small, strong hands, slender arms,and a thin and bony nose.” This entire quote is an example of imagery but the words that stick out are what show Steinbeck style.You could say that Steinbeck was killing two birds with one stone by saying,”restless eyes” because it adds a description to his eyes and is evidence of how long they have traveled. George has,” strong features”, this is an example of figurative language. The readers understand what it means, but know that the features themselves cannot be strong because they do not have the physical ability.
