  • Theme Of Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

    In “Stopping by the Woods on a snowy evening”, Robert Frost who is the author, constructs a hidden message of suicide throughout the poem. The narrator of the story takes a stroll through the woods, beside him is his horse and his slay. While he is attracted to the excellence of the forested areas, his horse shakes his harness bells to imply he must go home. The horse makes it known that he has commitments at home but that doesn’t pull him far from the charm of nature. On the other hand, is he really admiring the woods or is he contemplating suicide? This poem seems so pleasant, but I believe it indicates a deeper concern to the theme of suicide. While analyzing the text, in the first stanza, the speaker in the ballad, locates us to where he is. The opening lines state, “Whose woods these are I think I know. / His house is in the village though;”, the narrator assumes the owner of these woods is someone who lives in the village. Lines 3 and 4 states, “He will not see me stopping here/ To watch his woods fill up with snow.”, the woods seem to be set back far enough so the owners won 't see the speaker stopping on his property. The woods symbolize a journey of life and a movement towards death. It is known that when someone who wants to commit suicide they go to a place where no one can see them. The owner of the forested area is referred but his name was not mentioned. To dig deeper into those two lines, ‘he’ can be a reference to the spiritualist and virtual unnamable…

  • A Giant Has Been Awakened Analysis

    But how can this be true when both are killing? This could be all false as God may not be real which then they are believing in false luck and which means their sins are not washed away and will haunt them. This is shown in Bruce Springsteen’s Dust n Devils and the poem A Giant Has Been Awakened by Joe Pielmeier. I believe the connection is between how both sides of war state that God is on their side and fighting for their cause but how can God fight for both sides when they are fighting each…
