Walls Have Two In Robert Frosts Mending Wall he shows a man views about a wall The man names both pros and cons of having the wall He also hints at how a wall might affect a particular society The poem is a conversation between two neighbors on either side of a wall The main speakers conversation shows his views about the purpose of the wall and its effectiveness to either bring people together or its tendency to separate them The main speakers conversation shows his feelings about the purpose of the wall His monotonous feeling toward mending the wall shows his reluctance to having the wall In his conversation he explains that there is no need for a wall because My apple trees will never get across and eat the cones under his pines 25 Since the speaker can find no reason for the wall he questions his neighbor on its purpose And the other speaker can only answer with Good fences make good neighbors 27 With this answer the main speaker considers the fact that the wall must have no real purpose Since the wall is not walling anything in or walling anything out 33 Though the speaker sees the wall as having no purpose he does name at least one good thing about it The thing that he views as being good about the wall is its Moody 2 effectiveness to bring people together Perhaps if it were not for the wall the two neighbors would not have a reason to be together But since the wall needs repairing every spring the two neighbors have reason to be together Though the two dont speak much about meaningful things they are still together And maybe this is why the second speaker thinks that Good fences make good neighbors 27 The speaker contradicts his early view of the walls ability to bring people together when he shows how the wall separates
