Lynen also states that “the struggle between the human imagination and the meaningless void man confronts is the subject of poem after poem” (6). On speaking of Frost’s nature poetry, Gerber says, “with equanimity Frost investigates the basic themes of man’s life: the individual’s relationships to himself, to his fellow man, to his world, and to his God” (117). All of these... ... middle of paper ... ...adily yield its meaning to anyone (Bloom 9). From that last statement, one can recognize that indeed Robert Frost’s nature poetry is more than blooming flowers and snowy nights; obviously there is an underlying psychological meaning in most of his poems.

Robert Frost Writes About Nature? When talking about poetry, most people have herd, or been familiar with the name Robert Frost. Even I, who haven 't studied much poetry until now have herd of his name. Robert Frost and his poems had caught my attention when researching poets. Reading his poems automatically made me think of him as a natural poet, because most of them had so much nature involved in them.
Natures Theme “Nature is always hinting at us. It hints over and over again. And suddenly we take the hint.” This quote was taken from Robert Frost and demonstrates his feelings toward nature. Robert Frost is a well known American poet who draws on nature as the subject of his poems. There are three main things that account for Robert Frost’s poetry.
Robert Frost is known for his poems about nature, he writes about trees, flowers, and animals. This is a common misconception, Robert Frost is more than someone who writes a happy poem about nature. The elements of nature he uses are symbolic of something more, something darker, and something that needs close attention to be discovered. Flowers might not always represent beauty in Robert Frost’s poetry. Symbolism is present in every line of the nature’s poet’s poems.
Robert Frost's Use of Nature in Poetry Robert Frost, an American poet of the late 19th century, used nature in many of his writings. Frost was very observant of nature, he often used it to represent the emotion of his characters in his poetry. I will use "West-Running Brook" and "Once by the Pacific" to demonstrate Frost's use of nature in his writings. Robert Frost was born March 26, 1874 in San Francisco ("American Writers" 150). In 1885, the dying request of his father took Frost back to Massachusetts for the burial.
In many of Frost’s poems he uses symbolism to portray his ideas and views on the world to his reader. “Frost drew his inspiration and symbols from the New England countryside and his diction and rhythms from colloquial New England speech. Although he used simple words and basic ideas, his poems are eloquent and at times profound” (Ulanov 428). The poems have such a deep meaning that one cannot get all of the information out of it by just reading them once. Think of Frost’s poems like the layers of a jaw breaker, they are all different colors and taste just a little different and the deeper one gets into the jaw breaker, the better it is, just like Frost’s poetry.
Those things would never be the same again, but Robert Frost changed that. He allowed people to realize that nature always comes full circle. That you will always see the light of day again and nature is something that you can always find if you are looking of it. Robert Frost’s poetry was very meaningful because of the way that he set his poems in nature settings in the 20th and 21st centuries. Robert Frost really explains how nature can be something that brings people together peacefully in some of his poetry.
Romantic poets have a deep appreciation for the nature that surrounds them and are able to see passed the superficial parts of life in order to see what nature has to offer. The poem “Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey” by William Wordsworth is a prime example of romanticism. Wordsworth uses this poem to express to deep love for nature and how nature was able to completely change his life for the better. He uses love of nature, spontaneity and freedom, importance of commonplace, and supernatural forces to help the reader better understand nature. Nature is a major key to writing a romantic poem.
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” After a lifetime of ups and downs, Robert Frost said this quote. Most of his poems already shared his message, that life is not as easy as it may first appear to be. He used the simplicity of nature and vernacular speech to give his poems a casual mood, though underneath they display a much deeper meaning of life. These poems help to show people just some of the difficult things that will be faced in life, despite everything done to prevent them from happening. In particular, his poems “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” “Fire and Ice,” and “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening,” incorporate this meaning into them while on the surface, they seem like just simple poems about nature.
In other words, nature never leaves, humans are the ones to leave nature. Many of Frost’s poem clearly demonstrate the ways in which the peace of being fully juxtaposed to nature when a human steps outside their rigid human realm and learn to appreciate their natural surroundings. Robert Frost has always been noted for his incredible poetry that is full of imagery, symbolism, tone, and depth. The depth in his poems appears to be most often portrayed through his use of symbolism, as this is one veritable way to give the reader something to dwell upon and examine. For example, if Fr... ... middle of paper ... ...deep.
