STOPPING BY WOODS ON A SNOWY EVENINGRobert Frosts poems Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and Acquainted with the Night seem to be ordinary poems at first glance but after an in depth look at these works and how they relate they become much more Frost seemed to keep a tone of mystery throughout each of these poems never actually telling the reader exactly what was going on By the same token the poems gave off sense of darkness and gloom just adding to the mystery of what lies ahead Neither of the characters in these poems seem to be very happy which also augments the gloomy mood of these poems The characters in these poems also appear to be on some kind of journey but are reluctant to go ahead and find out what fate has planned for them A sense of obligation is also present in these poems an obligation which must be fulfilled whether the character likes it or notMore easily seen is the mystery in each of these poems Frost keeps the reader in suspense by never telling the reader what exactly is going on but just touches on what might be going on And to make things even more mysterious he gives you hints and leaves the reader with a lot to think about in these poems In Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening Frost exhibits this fairly clearly when his character mentions in the first line of the poem Whose woods these are I think I knowHis house is in the village thoughHe will not see me stopping here These first three lines set a mood of dishonesty as if the character is not supposed to be there but its all right for now because the owner doesnt know hes there This little hint pops a question in your mind What exactly is this guy doing hence the mystery Frost once again sets the mood for mystery
