The writing can mean a variety of things. However all can be narrowed down to one exact thing theme. Choices
Choices are made throughout all of poems. Some choices the characters mae were regretful while other made a large impact. I know this because each article provides evidence for my claim.
The first one, “Because I could not stop for death-” talked about how a women was being taken to her grave while enjoying a peaceful ride with death there. As sorrowful as it sound it’s very relevant to my claim about the theme. In the first two stanzas it states,”Because I could not stop for Death –He kindly stopped for me –” This shows that the women in the poem must not have noticed she was dying until she was dead meaning that she …show more content…
One of smallest poems of hers. In this article, it states, “I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;” This can also add on the the previous poem, things she hasn’t done because of her choices,”
“The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost is probably one of the biggest ones to really make a home run when to choices. First example is from the first 3 paragraphs, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood-And sorry I could not travel both-And be one traveler, long I stood.” This shows he only had one choice to make and none other. Being only one person he could only take one path. This choice must’ve been quite important to him for him to contemplate on for so long. Perhaps it was a life choice that could've changed his future. Who knows?
In the third paragraph in the last two lines presents our second piece of evidence which states, “Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.” This shows that he was really thinking about his choice. He knew that if he had chosen a path he would have to permanently stay there and doubted being able to go back meaning there were no shortcut for to choose just 2 paths that opposed each …show more content…
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.” This shows that he made a choice not all would follow by but a choice that is rarely chosen. And because he did this he believed he made a difference.
The rest of poems also contributed to theme as well“I heard a Fly Buzz-When I Died”, proved to be a continuation or prequel of “Because I could not Stop for Death-” as it talks about how the woman died with choices still to be made and done. “Fire and Ice” did the Robert the author states, “But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate -To say that for destruction ice-Is also great -And would suffice.” meaning he would rather choose fire over ice. “Home Burial simply talks about how each person choose to react of the death of their child. The woman being irrational and depressed while the man is peaceful and comforting. Lastly “Stopping by the Wood on a Snowy Evening” writes about a man who looked at the woods in curiousity. Perhaps choosing whether or not to dwell farther into it.
In conclusion the theme of the entire compilation of poems is choices. From the choice the man had to to choose his path to the woman who regretted not making the right choices before she died they all had to chose. Maybe one day choices like that would come to us
