Analysis of Robert Frost´s Poem Birches

- In Robert Frost’s poem “Birches” the poem does not vaguely say who the narrator is but it is assumed it is a man. The poem draws a parallel between two worlds. The poem takes place on a winter morning in the woods with icy white birch trees scattering the landscape. The poem is not about the landscape, but rather the narrator images of his past. The birch tree’s branches question the narrator to what is real and what is not. This “swinging” event has a great effect on the narrator causing him to imagine “some boy's been swinging” in the birch tree “bending them to the left and right.” This is where reality takes over his imagination because of the fact that “swinging doesn't bend them down t...   [tags: reality, imagination, images, past]

- Joel All throughout the Bible, it authors and story lines tend to have individual challenges and some others are very straight forward. However, the book of Joel has been a problem to understand and find out “simple” details about it. For years I skipped over the minor prophets simply because in my Sunday school I was told that “The minor prophets had small warnings towards God’s people and they were never talked about again”. Now, besides the fact that my Sunday school teacher did not wanted to fully teach, she could not have been more wrong about these prophets....   [tags: Bible, God, Prophet, Book of Joel]

Imaginative Freedom of Birches

- Imaginative Freedom of Birches        In "Birches" (Mountain Interval, 1916) Frost begins to probe the power of his redemptive imagination as it moves from its playful phase toward the brink of dangerous transcendence. The movement into transcendence is a movement into a realm of radical imaginative freedom where (because redemption has succeeded too well) all possibilities of engagement with the common realities of experience are dissolved. In its moderation, a redemptive consciousness motivates union between selves as we have seen in "The Generations of Men," or in any number of Frost's love poems....   [tags: Robert Frost Birches Essays]
