The neighbor, however, thinks himself highly for his wit, disregards the wisdom of his father, and states indifferently, "Good fences ... ... middle of paper ... ... appeal to touch that "We wear our fingers rough with handling them." In this, the poet proposes that we let ourselves be taxed with the problems and differences. He elaborates on this concept as he states another visual sentence, "He is all pine and I am apple orchard." This line depicts the differences between him and his neighbor. Robert Frost joins all his lines together in this narrative poem while still focusing on different ideas.
Sandburg's style of writing is what changed the course of American poetry. Before Sandburg, most poetry and other literary works were considerably similar, along with dull and boring. He carried poetry to "new horizons." He, many times, wrote of reality, which was not always what people wanted to read, but it was reality and it had to be dealt with. This is how his writing became so known, because he dealt with what was real in our fantasy world.
He is a "peoples poet" his poems' characters often provide "physiological portraits" of fictional and historical characters suffering an isolation of some sort (990). Robinson is considered a transitional figure; he is the precursor of Modernist poetry. He uses the older traditional influences of form and rhyme and his poems are often simple and neat. However, in juxtaposition of these old and highly stylistic forms, he uses personal subject matter in the make-up of his characters. The use of these very personal experiences is what contributes to the intrigue that most readers feel when reading his poems.
Although this poem is limited to words on paper, it expresses infinity of feelings, thoughts, and emotions. When I first read this poem I did not have a gut reaction, I just didn’t understand it. But as I dove into the poem and read deeply, and I let my mind walk freely in the deep thoughts of death, nature, and comfort I truly started to understand it. I chose this poem because it represents poetry as an art form better than any poem I have ever read. Its uses of alliteration, personification, and similes truly exemplify the writer’s thoughts and feeling so that the reader reads the poem with emotion
This essay is included my own understanding, plus some information that I gathered from a lot of researches and critics’ comments on this poem. I, myself interpret this poem through the first perspective I would explain about, and in two other perspectives my ideas hardly is included. "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" Complete Text Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village, though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year.
E. Metacognitionists everywhere will rejoice at Frost’s perspective on life. It is never evident as to what the mite or the paper truly stands for, however, the world is seen from a unique perspective for the duration of the poem. Instead of the everyday environment, readers notice a stark mite against a blank paper and relate situations from their own lives. Frost tends to write about nature and this poem follows his usual writing style with added satire in mocking individuals who do not think for themselves. He recognizes the regimental ways of modern society and calls for individuality, originality, and simple uniqueness that has always driven creativity.
To conclude, I found that these two poems were very interesting and that the language and style that the poet used really helped the poems. My favorite poem was ‘Lore’, I thought Job Davies outlook on life was fantastic and also the way he told us to forget the machine and stick close to nature was good advice. I felt sorry for the Old Man as he went through a lot, but so did Job Davies but he overcame it, so can anyone.
This is a little ironic, because in real life people always find it harder to tell others what they think. I believe that writing down your deepest emotions and having someone read it is much easier than telling them in person. In the end I think that my feelings towards poetry are much different now. I still feel the same way about some parts of poetry, but not all. I now have greater appreciation for poetry and poets.

Although I do not like reading books that have a depressing mood like Lowell's, I appreciate the work he has done. As I read in one book: "'Life Studies' broke new ground with its despairing yet elegant lucidity" (J. Myers and D. Wojahn, p. 194), I agree with the saying. His poems are very complex, profound, and are even unresolved. It can be discussed unlimited number of times and still have a charming mystery about it. In "Dunbarton", which is a very short piece, Robert Lowell was able to express the great love he had for his grandfather and I think that it takes a great amount of talent to do it with such ease and flow.
