The Similarities in the Works Created By Robert Frost.
Poet, Robert Frost, uses a variety of vivid descriptions to portray the images in most of his works. His creative imagination molds each setting into a lively rendition of the poem. The sharp contrast between word usage sets up the stage, as the theme unravels. Frost has a unique way of associating his poems with one another by creating the mood and setting usage of symbol and the themes.
The mood and setting is a major asset to the evolving creation. The tone of most Frost poems is very tranquil. The settings include many aspects of nature and therefore create a calming effect.
Nature is an obvious observation when reading Frost's work. Forces of nature are used to create the bulk of the setting. In "One Acquainted with the Night," he describes his surroundings while walking down the city's streets. His descriptions paint a canvas for the reader to visualize. The rain, darkness, and city lights set a mood for this particular poem. In Roberts and Jacobs, the poem states the sounds heard, "I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet" (1,111). This creates a mysterious lurking effect. .
While being acquainted with the night, Frost embellishes on the unfamiliar sounds that may not be noticeable on a busy daylight hour.
Frost sets up "The Silken Tent" in a beautiful setting. It is easy to picture the soft silk of the tent swaying in the sweet summer air. It is amazing how something as simple as a tent can be turned into such a soft and delicate object. This is a poem where tranquility and calmness can overcome the reader. The tone is set from the very first stanza Roberts and Jacobs (1112):.
She is as in a field a silken tent.
At midday when a sunny summer breeze.
Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent,.
So the in guys it gently sways at ease,.
One of Frost's more well-known poems "Birches" also sculpts an authentic setting as he describes the context in which the branches of the birch trees have derived.
