  • Tone Of The Poem
    677 words
    Frost's poem is melancholy and nostalgic in tone and soothing, almost hypnotic, in rhythm. Peaceful and serene in the natural scene it describes, it seems to sway between restful repose and death.

The simple, formulaic phrasing and rhythm of the poem belie something hidden, beneath and in the past, which is more complex. Frost, differently from Hayden's free verse, uses the form...

  • Poem Disillusionment Of Ten O'clock
    290 words
    Poem Analysis of "Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock" The poem Disillusionment of Ten O'clock is a carefully constructed, tightly orchestrated poem written by Wallace Stevens. The author's tone is the theme of the poem - the lack of Romance in our lives.

My favorite poem that was read in class this week was Ba...
