    Please, I want to know the points about which I should compare and/or each poet perspective when he wrote about the painting of The Starry Night.

    Thanks

    What have you come up with so far?
    Since they have the same title, they seem to about the same thing. Are they?
    How does each poet feel about the starry night? What does it mean to each of them? To me the title suggests Van Gogh and his painting. What does each poem suggest to you.
    What is the form of each poem - meter, rhyme, etc. If they are different, what effect does that have.
    I'm sure you could find something telling you how to analyse a poem on the web, if you have not adequately learnt it from your teacher.
