Creative Consortium Response #1: Sound Poetry

Post  llamasarecool on Mon Feb 04, 2013 8:29 pm

Robert Frost gives this poem a simple AABBA rhyme pattern in each stanza that gives the poem a sense of sad beauty. In stanza 2, when Frost writes,

"O'er ruined fences the grape-vines shield
The woods come back to the mowing field;"

he is describing a lot of nature aspects. All throughout stanza 1, Frost displays a creepy mood, while down in the third and fourth stanzas, it gets lighter and has more energy, and talks about "...shout...cluck...flutter...arrive...road..." Then in the fifth stanza, it becomes slower again.

"And the purple-stemmed wild raspberries grow" gives a sense of death and the dark, creepy objects at a funeral.

"The orchard tree has grown one copse." Copse almost sounds like corpse - again, a sense of death.

In stanza 6, "As sweet companions as might be had" Frost talks about the lighter side of death, and "...tireless folk, but slow and sad..." is not wanting to accept the fact that society is killing people. Nature is society and people are the trees in nature.

Very good overall. However, I have no idea what you're talking about here-

In stanza 6, "As sweet companions as might be had" Frost talks about [b]the lighter side of death[/b], and "...tireless folk, but slow and sad..." [b]is not wanting to accept the fact that society is killing people[/b]. Nature is society and people are the trees in nature.

I bit of elaboration would be helpful.

I like how you talked about how the mood of the poem evolved throughtout, and I also liked a lot of your choices of quotes but would have liked further elaboration what they represent.
Overall a good response!

I think it was good that you used a lot of examples and quotes however some more analysis is needed. It's kind of unknown what point you are trying to prove with the last quote. Otherwise it was a good response with a lot of evidence used!

your last sentence strikes me as a very loose perspective of human beings. "Nature is society and people are the trees in nature." Very interesting way of viewing human society, although kind of confusing. Are you saying that nature is similar to human society or vice versa? You seem to be viewing humans only as [u]trees[/u] in nature...what about animals, seeds, and perhaps other plants? What are they in relation to human society, as compared to nature?

I thought you had a very well thought out response. When you said "-gives the poem a sense of sad beauty." it gave me the image of what you were thinking and it helped me look at the poem with a very different perspective. That was also very helpful, thanks!
