Analysis of Frost's Mending Wall - To begin the poem, the speaker describes the various causes for the damage of the wall. When he refers to something there “that doesn’t love a wall,” he is referring to a tree, which by nature is consistently causing damage to the wall. As the roots of the tree grow, it causes the frozen ground beneath the wall to swell, and “spills the upper boulders in the sun.” Clearly this tree has a problem with the wall, and yet the speaker and his neighbor continue to fix it every year.

Where Not To Base Your Faith: Nathaniel Hawthorne's Young Goodman Brown - Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?" (Matthew 14:31) The manner in which Goodman Brown based his faith is a very good example of how not to base one’s faith. The strength of Goodman Browns faith was based on his wife’s faith, his trust in his neighbors, and his personal experiences. The strength of one’s faith is one of the most important aspects of any person, and it is especially important in the story Young Goodman Brown. The definition of faith according to Merriam-Webster.com is, “Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.” In order for one to closely e...   [tags: jesus, goodman brown]
