Okay, so im online today, and my friend tells me to help him analyze this poem by leonard cohen: http://www.windgallery.com/poetry/victim.htm Well, i didn't know how to. Though I do like reading poetry once in a blue moon, sometimes when i HAVE to read it and say write something about it more than "oh that was nice" in an essay or whatnot, i dont know where to start. My english teacher hasn't taught us how to analyze poetry, but a tutor awhile ago said the Grade 12 english final is based alot on analyzing poetry. I always thought it was something a person 'had' in them, wheter they could analyze poetry or not, or how they interpreted it. But it turns out its not, and theres a way to do it. So, how do i do it? How do I analyze a poem?
