‘Parade’s end’ the poet uses the symbol of the car to represent conflict in subtle clever ways. For example the champagne gold car, which automatically triggers images of wealth in your mind, ironically.
Also, ‘parade’s end’ is much more poetic in the sense that the meaning is much more implicit, you have to dig deep to find it. In ‘invasion’ the meaning is explicitly in front of you, much more obvious.
Both poems have a completely different meaning explicitly. Invasion is about war and parade’s end is about belonging. However, implicitly they are very similar, both are about sorrow and misery and shattered aspirations.
Both are descriptive, and use adjectives and metaphors to help get a clear image of where the poem sets, and the context. Parade’s end is more subtle about it. Invasion uses a more eerie set of linguistic devices.
As we are aware, all the poems relate to the same theme, in this collection ‘clashes and collisions’. All the poems are about conflict and how people deal with those situations. Their misery is always unrelated for example war and invasion and acceptance in parade’s end. On an implicit level, in the end they both tie together, ending in misery and shattered dreams.
