tomorrow's essay question tonight

Here is the essay question you'll be writing on in class tomorrow:

You carefully studied your first literature analysis book of the spring semester by taking two weeks to read, actively thinking and writing notes, and preparing for an essay. Then you proceeded to memorize--MEMORIZE!-- Henry V's Battle of Agincourt pep talk. Use your hard-won knowledge of both texts to answer the following question.

How does the dramatic situation and structure of each text influence its theme and tone? Please describe three additional techniques/analytical elements of poetry or prose that inform your understanding of these two works.
