They are different since in I Hear America Singing, it describes how any one can work hard and achieve the American dream. In I,Too,Sing America, it describes how the American dream can be achieved but people may try to stop you. These poems are similar because they both are talking about achieving the American Dream and that this dream is possible for any one
