    February 2012 The poems that I have decided to write about are‚ “Acquaint With The Night”‚ and “A Road Not Taken”‚ by Robert Frost. Frost was exposed to literature from an early age both of his parents were teachers. He started writing at the age of fifteen; he admired writers such as William Shakespeare‚ Robert Buras‚ and William Wordsworth. (Spencer and Chris) I believe that Frost wrote “Acquaint With The Night” because it was during a time of depression just after the stock market crash in 1929

    Frost’s “Acquainted with the Night” portrays a life filled with depression due to isolation. Frost’s personal experiences may have influenced the poem because he was known to have a sad life with many deaths in his family. This left him depressed and cut off from the world. The title gives insight into Frost’s bleak and lonesome world‚ where the darkness of night makes no impression on him. He uses a descriptive language with an array of different symbols in his poem “Acquainted with the Night”. The

The poem begins “I have been one acquainted with the night‚” it means‚ basically‚ that he has met‚ or has some knowledge of‚ the night. It is a neutral way to say something. You’d say you were acquainted with someone if you had met them‚ but weren’t friends with them. We can read that maybe the individual is restless and

    “The Road Not Taken” I think that this poem is about regret‚ not the regret of the choice made‚ but that of not being able to choose both paths. In the first two lines of the poem‚ the speaker is at a fork in the road of and knows that he can only go down one of these roads. The word “yellow” in the first line makes me think of flowers‚ nature‚ and ultimately life. This is the path of life‚ which is full of choices. In the second and third lines‚ the speaker regrets not being able to go down
