Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert FrostStopping by woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost is one ofthe many deeply symbolic poems that he has written Frost was a poet whosought to master his art His poems he wrote were deceptively simple inappearance but saturated with meaning In this particular poem Frost paintsa simple picture that appears to be quite lucid until one takes a closer look toreveal what is hidden within the wordsAs the poem begins there is a man driving by a dark wooded area He stops and admires the scereness of the snow falling in the woods Herecalls the the man who owns the land and knows of his house in the village The land owner asleep in his bed can not see him stop by his land and theman reasons that he will not mind as he gazed at his woods The mans horseis confused why they have stoped and shakes his bells The man then recallshis obligation to the real world the miles he will travel and the poem stopsThere is the first conflict of the poem between nature the woods andcivilization the village The man stops to appreciate the peaceful scene ofsnow falling to the forest floor but is reminded of his own obligations by thefact that he knows of the man who owns the land This fact connects himback to civilization and is a reminder of his own promises he has to keepThe next conflict occurs when the horse seems to ask if there is somemistake for their stopping by shaking his bells The horse realizes there areno homes and no reasonable excuses for stopping The horse symbolizessomething practical opposed to the man who wishes to stay and watch thesnow fill up the woods The horse does not see the view as the man sees it To the man it is a surreal environment or escape and he sees the beauty ofthe snow descending
