Using Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening and The Road Not Taken, write about the way Robert Frost uses some apparently simple situations to explore life's journey.
Robert Frost often writes about journeys. Although his poems may at first seem plain, they have wider meanings, which often regard life's journey. Because people can often relate to Frost's writing due to his simple language, he is a still a very popular poet today. His life spanned two important eras of literature - the Victorian and Modernist eras - as he was born in 1874 and died in 1963. He was American but travelled to England, which may account for his vivid descriptions of the world and his knowledge of the decisions in life which have to be made.
'Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening' is a typical Frost poem. It centres on this theme and a natural setting. The narrator is travelling near woods. He is alone and has complete solitude:
'Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though'.
The poet here suggests that this man is on his own in an isolated area
