Example text

Because it investigates a problem rather than simply attacking it, it is one of the more successful examples of social criticism in Frost's poetry. There are other poems of Frost that yield a social or political meaning, usually by implication only. It is hard to consider the frozen marriages portrayed in "The Death of the Hired Man" or "Home Burial" without thinking of the kinds of change that might have thawed them out. Nor is it possible to read ''Mending Wall" (the poem that begins section three) and fail to wonder what would happen if the wall were gone.

The emotion of the speaker, and various subtleties of feeling can be gathered simply from the tone, rhythm, pitch, and shape of speech. Poetry, without the implicit meaning and the freshness and verve of spoken language, is lifeless. Part of the trick then in writing a poem is to make sure that the sound of a sentence, as spoken, is built into the line. In Frost's words: "The actor's gift is to execute the vocal image at the mouth. " This is exactly what he did, and more. Rarely did he borrow sentences he heard and write them down verbatim.

Such poetry expresses the bitterness we feel when confronted with the disfigurement of a landscape we have loved and celebrateda bitterness which Louise Gluck's "Witchgrass" turns to anger, namely nature's anger (uttered by the grass) against ourselves. Yet there remains in many of these poems the sense that the land, in the end, will resist and that nature is as powerful as always. Indeed, the same hierarchy that appears in the Frost poem still holds true, not only for the nearly extinct subsistence farmer depicted in Galway Kinnell's "Farm Picture," but for the rest of us as well.
