Simplicity is what makes Robert Frosts poetry so extraordinary His choice words to describe nature people and every day situations is what benchmarked his place in modern literature Although his words may be simplistic beneath the surface the reader feels and visualizes every emotion Desert Places is no exception Throughout the four stanzas Frosts imagery describes one mans walk through loneliness and desolation And the ground almost covered smooth in snow Frost 3 The blank white snow symbolizes a cold deserted field full of empty space The snow acts as a blanket that disguises everything living But a few weeds and stubble showing last Frost 4 The speaker is engulfed with the feelings of emptiness and loneliness when the unexpected snow falls Between stanzas one and two the speaker has stopped to decide what his next move will be The woods around it have it it is theirsAll animals are smothered in their lairs Frost 5-6 Everything has lost its warmth and color In line seven I am too absent-spirited to count the speaker begins to lose his own identity He is no longer a stranger in the woods but a part of it His feeling loneliness and desolation grows stronger when he becomes indistinguishable among everything around him In stanza three the speaker tries to make sense of his lost security You can only imagine a man standing still pondering over his own vacancy and self worth while drops of snow land on his face making him feel more and more distant from everything around him With no expression nothing to express Frost 12 The speaker is confined to no emotion and complete isolation Between stanzas three and four the speaker reaches rock bottom Somehow he is awaken from his loneliness and desolation They cannot scare me with their empty spacesBetween stars on stars where no human race is Frost 13-14 I pity the speakers
