There are also specific uses of imagery. Frost says, “To watch his woods fill up with snow” (Frost 4). Statements such as these make it easy for the reader to picture woods filling with snow, flake by flake. This is also an example of hyperbole. The narrator feels alone, and he or she knows that no one is there to see them intruding.
Tomorrow is never promised and a person can quickly forget about enjoying life and its greatest treasures, and without even expecting it everything can be taken away. In addition to, the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” narrates the story of a man; perhaps the poet, who was traveling on a late snowy evening by horse in the woods, this man loved to appreciate nature and the snowfall in time
Through his writing in the beginning of the poem I am lead to understand he is referring to a man he might have a common relationship with. The author is admiring the sight of snow falling and decorating a village from afar. The melody of this poem is brought to the reader in a couple different ways. Commonly, I noticed immediately, the rhyming rhythm used by the author. “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”: “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” (p.586, II.
As he stops in woods, he thinks about the owner of woods. He thinks of the land owner who is not present to see him trespassing. He feels safe as the owner “will not see” him “stopping” in woods “to watch his woods fill up the snow” (lines 3-4). It explains his careless behavior and desire to admire the natural beauty. According to Thomas March, it is not an important fact the man knows the owner, but he is far away from woods.
Ed proves he is hunting for pride and for the respect of his friends when he says, "I might as well make some show of doing what I said I had come for" and " All I had really wanted was to stay away a reasonable length of time, long enough for the others to wake and find me gone […]. That would satisfy honor" (95). Ed is a city boy dissatisfied with work and love and to compensate he goes on this trip against his better judgment. The four suburbanites have no business being in the forest, the only one that has made a habit of hunting is Ed's friend Lewis.
Right away the speaker acknowledges that he does not own woods. The last stanza includes a few more descriptive words about the woods; although, the woods do not appear to be the whole purpose of the poem (F1 354). Frost uses both visual and audio imagery to reveal various facts to the reader. “He will not see me stopping here” reveals to the reader that the speaker believes no one will see him and so he feels all right about the things he is thinking. “To watch his woods fill up with snow” implies that the speaker has been watching for a while.
The Self and Society in Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening For the speaker of Robert Frost's poem, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," the time that he takes to stop and view the woods is unusual; his duties and responsibilities don't allow for him to linger. Even so, the speaker finds great pleasure in this unexpected pause in his journey. The binary oppositions present in the poem indicate that, regardless of his responsibilities, the speaker would like to remain in the woods and take in the scene set before him. For it is here in the woods that the speaker feels a sense of individualism; it offers an escape from the communal responsibilities with which he is laden. However, while the "natural" side of the oppositions within the poem seem to be privileged, the speaker finally chooses to lay them aside and carry out his duties.
When read literally Robert Frost’s Birches is the speakers observations of the birch trees in a calm New England setting. The speaker sees the permanent bend of the trees from frequent ice storms and the climbing of a playful boy. The speaker appreciates the trees, as they are a part of his comforting surroundings. He would prefer the branches to be bent by a boy for the trees hold a place in his heart and he does not want their pain and destruction to be in vain. In line 41 the speaker’s voice changes.
He does not expect to be seen, because the owner lives in the village, nor does he want to be seen, because, besides being on someone else's property, it would be out of character for him to be there. He is a man of the world who has promised his time to other people, so it seems unusual that he has stopped what he’s doing to watch the woods. He knows who owns which pieces of land, or thinks he does, and his speech has a sort of pleasant familiar-ness, as in just "stopping by." The speaker says, “Whose woods these are, I think I know/ His house is in the village though.” He is unsure of the owner in the first line, and then in the second he says that the owner lives in the village. In the second line, he seems...
