    Hi Cleopatra.
    I had the same problem as you, try putting the name of the poem you want analysed in the search engine with the word analysis or meaning and you should get information you can use.

    Many poets, I include myself here, paint the word picture hoping each person can come along and see something for themselves in it. That way not everyone will see the same thing. The trouble is teachers at school tend to stick with how books analyse poems. Personally I think this is too bad as it puts far too many kids off poetry before they have a chance to realise just how delicious it really is! ....try telling that to your literature teacher :)
