In literature we had to compare the poems written by the brothers; Gabriel Rosetti “The Woodspurge” and Christina Rosetti “A birthday”.
- Atmosphere: The atmosphere of a birthday is a very joyful and cheerful one. The atmosphere of the woodspurge is depressing and obscure.
- Tones: A birthday: happy, glad, idyllic and distressed. The woodspurge: full of grief, depressing, sad and hopeless.
- Theme: A birthday: love. The woodspurge: expressing sadness.
