Robert Frost’s Poem Mending Wall - Generally speaking, human beings are neither wholly irrational nor rational. They are both. Many people justifiably build walls in order to shut other out due to lack of comfort or possible vulnerability. However, in some cases humans take the action of “building walls” too far, and this is where it becomes completely irrational. When it comes to fear, it can be very difficult to differentiate what is rational versus what is irrational. When building walls, or choosing not to, personal experiences and knowledge should always be taken into consideration....   [tags: neighbor, relationships, team work]
