When asked to compare the two poems ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ 'Boy driving his father to confession' by Seamus Heaney and 'Praise song for my mother' by Grace Nichols the first thing that stuck out was the difference in layout. Seamus Heaney's poem is written in longer sentences and reads more like a story. Grace Nichols poem is a lot shorter with only two words in some lines and it compares her mother to various things. Seamus Heaney writes about his father in a realistic way, never praising him and only focussing on his bad points. Grace Nichols on the other hand...
his son how to drive the car.

I preferred "Boy driving his father to confession" to "Praise song for my mother" I think it's because the Irish culture is similar to our own and the references in "Praise Song" do not really mean much to me, also Seamus Heaney poem is more of a story with Grace Nichols poem you have to think about what she means ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ when she refers to her mother as "pull and grained and mantling". Perhaps also because I am a son I relate better to "Boy driving his father to confession".
