PROMPT: Choose ONE poem from the selection we read by Robert Frost. In a short response, analyze the poem using poetic terminology (such as rhyme, meter, literary devices, speaker, tone, form, etc.) to your analysis.
Questions to consider as you write:
– How does the poem’s structure create meaning?
– What significance do certain literary devices (imagery, symbolism, metaphors, etc.) have in structuring that meaning?
– What is the theme/message, and how does that relate to the time period and/or Frost’s biography?
