Intent: Stating a contrast between 2 poets

A. whose poems have gained recognition over the years as portraying a foreboding tone, Homer’s epic volumes of poetry are
Incorrect comparison, poet compared with a particular type of poem

B. with poems that are recognized portraying a foreboding tone over the years, the epic volumes of poetry written by Homer are
Incorrect comparison, poet compared with a particular type of poem

C. the poems of which have been recognized as portraying a foreboding tone, in the example of Homer, his epic volumes of poetry are
Illogical construction, we are trying to bring out a contrast

D. whose poems have gained recognition over the years for their foreboding tone, Homer produced epic volumes of poetry that are
Matches the intent

E. for whom recognition has been gained over the years for poems in a foreboding tone, Homer’s epic volumes of poetry are
Incorrect comparison, poet compared with a particular type of poem

Edgar Allen Poe compared to Homer’s epic volumes of poetry

Comparison must between logical comparable entities.

We can compare sizes of tow objects but not size of object with quality of object:
Size of the blue dress is less than size of the red dress. - correct
Size of the blue dress is less than quality of the red dress. - incorrect

Edgar Allen Poe himself as a person cannot be compared to Homer’s epic volumes of poetry.

POE

By understanding intended meaning of the sentence and finding out heart of the comparison, we can eliminate 4 wrong answers on solid ground, not even taking into consideration other errors.

A. whose poems have gained recognition over the years as portraying a foreboding tone, Homer’s epic volumes of poetry are

B. with poems that are recognized portraying a foreboding tone over the years, the epic volumes of poetry written by Homer are

C. the poems of which have been recognized as portraying a foreboding tone, in the example of Homer, his epic volumes of poetry are

E. for whom recognition has been gained over the years for poems in a foreboding tone, Homer’s epic volumes of poetry are

D. whose poems have gained recognition over the years for their foreboding tone, Homer produced epic volumes of poetry that are
