Nature In Frost's Poems

.... paths are so long he can't tell where they will end (Frost 84). "He looks down the other to be fair." "Frost thinks he would heave a better claim." Frost thinks he would do better if he took the one less traveled. "The paths are wanted wear." He is saying no matter what which one, he goes he will have to take a path (Frost 84).

Poem: My Heart Aches

.... grows pale and spacter--thin, and dies; Where but to think is to be full of sorrow And leaden-eyed despairs, Where Beauty cannot keep her lustrous eyes Or new Love pine at them beyond tomorrow. Away! Away! for I will fly to thee, Not charioted by Becchus and his pards, But on the viewless wings of poesy, Though the dull brain perplexes and retards: Already with thee! tender is the night, And haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne, Clustered around by all her starry Fays; But here there is no light, S .....

"Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night": Death Through Repetition And Diction

.... man went back and forth between life and death as the stanzas' last lines switched back and forth.

Merry-Go-Round: Critical Analysis

.... smiles float towards the watching crowd". The last three stanzas show the emphasised view of the cynical adult who is simply observing the children from a detached outside viewpoint. For example, "almost I see the marvel they see" is informing the reader that he is "almost" caught up in the enchantment as the children are. McAvley's clever use of diction and imagery add to the enchantment of the merry-go-round as the children see it as a magical fantasy world. It is continually likened to another world. .....

One good comparison may be when the author equates the passions of the statue's frown, sneer, and wrinkled lip to the "lifeless things" remaining in the "desart."

When gold is melted it does not sputter and is therefore quiet. The speaker and his love should not display their private, intimate love as “tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move” (line 6). The speaker .....
