Critical Thinking of the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening | Four-Level Analysis | BBA Notes



Stopping in the Woods by the Snowy Evening is a beautiful poem composed by Robert Frost. The poem has a good moral with a strong message. However, there are things which I don’t agree with. The poet seems to forget his responsibilities towards his family, friends, and community as he gazes the beauty of woods. That makes me question if everyone finds the nature so beautiful that it makes them forget about their duties and responsibilities completely? The beauty of nature gives us a sense of joy and enjoyment for a moment but that doesn’t mean we have the right to forget what and who we are. Responsibilities come first before anything and I believe that the whole concept of linking duties and responsibilities of a person with natural beauties isn’t justified.
