The structure in “The ruined maid” is basicaly six verses and each verse is another part in their conversation. In “They flee from me” there are three large verses in which something else about love or past lovers is said. In the last poem I studied, “Scince theres no help” there is one large verse and then a small one at the end. The first one talks about the death of the person and forgeting them, the smaller one talks about after the person has died.

The only poem out of the three that I studied was “The ruined maid” in this poem a few words or variations of words are repeated at the end or start of a line. Examples of this are the word And which is repaeated at the start of one line in each verse. “Said she” is repaeted at the end of every verse and the last word that is repeated is ruined or another variation of the word, which is repaeted before “said she”.

The most complex poem whould have to be “They flee from me” it uses a complex langue some times, with words like “newfangleness”. “Scince theres no help” is not very complex and uses a simple languae. “The ruined maid” is slightly complex, as it uses old dorsit type words like “thikoon”.

The only poem that is old fashined is “the ruined maid” we can tell this because in one verse the word “megrims” is said, this was the old word for migrams.

All of these poems have a few features of them the same as the other ones, but in some cases there are big differancese, for example “The ruined maid” has a few things the othe poems don’t, like dialogue and repatition.
