Robert Frostâ€™s:â€œStopping by Woods on a Snowy Eveningâ€ The poem â€œStopping by Woods on a Snowy Eveningâ€, by Robert Frost, really caught my eye when I first read it and it left me wanting more.I found myself reading the poem over and over again, yet I still could not pinpoint what the theme might be.
So after numerous times of reading, I came to the conclusion that I would talk about three categories in which help express the theme of this poem.They are beauty, nature, and responsibility. I chose beauty mainly because from the beginning the poet is saying in the woods snow begins to fall around him; and it is the beauty of the woods that makes him stop in the first place.Also the lines â€œBetween the woods and frozen lake,â€ â€œThe darkest evening of the year,â€ and â€œThe woods are lovely, dark and deep.â€The narrator seems to find the beauty that surrounds him enough of a reason to stop.Picturing that scenery in my mind just seems to be one of the most beautiful things I could ever imagine.

Some would think I am strange for finding the darkness of the woods to be beautiful, and I would to in some occasions.But with a white blanket of snow covering the floor of the woods, it would seem as if it could be a bright romantic night. Next I chose nature because the poet seemed to have a fascination with it, natural and man made.For example, quotes such as â€œHis house is in the village thoughâ€, â€œBetween the woods and frozen lakeâ€, and â€œOf easy wind and downy flake.â€He is passing through woods which are a part of natural nature.
But someone owns these woods and his house is in the village, nature that was man made. As he continues riding through the woods he is admiring the woods filling up with snow, a part of nature that cannot be changed.There is a frozen lake.The lake could have possibly been man made, that we do not know.But nature takes its course when the water is frozen.Another quote â€œTo stop without a farmhouse nearâ€ has some nature involved.Again being man made nature in which man had to make the farmhouse.It is the horse who seems impatient and wants to find a place of rest, a farmhouse.This shows us how
