Robert Frost is Four-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, Robert Frost (1874 – 1963) was, and remains, an icon on the American literary landscape. Though born in San Francisco, he is closely identified with New England and his poems dealing with rural life.
In the poem, “Home Burial” by Robert Frost it’s a sad story because it’s about a man and women lost a child. Perhaps their only child has died and the wife is grieving more.
Her mourn is bottomless and expressing her sorrow. The husband is grieving too, but in a different way. In a way that the wife does not understand and on his side, the husband doesn’t comprehend her way of lamenting either. They both misunderstand each other and they cannot be there for each other in a time of such suffering. They aren’t communicating and they don’t understand each other ways of grieving in this lost. The women trying to move on and forget the past, but she can’t. She feels suffocating with the grieve and being around a man she assumes that doesn’t understand the importance of grieve.
In the poem, “God’s Garden” by Robert Frost in the story the garden represents the Garden of Eden. God creates a perfect place in which there was a narrow and straight path to happiness, joy, and success. He then creates mankind and gives them possession of the garden as well. However, the poem also said that there was another creator referring to the devil and that he planted alluring gold flowers. The gold flowers represented the forbidden fruit.
Adam and Eve having been deceived by the devil, or in the poem “gold flowers”, caused them pain and suffering when God removed them from the garden. There are lots of things in life that are golf flowers and many things will come to distract us in the modern world. We have a path to walk. That the things that please and comfort us often entrap and enslave us.
The similarity in both stories is that life somethings treats us differently than how we expect. Especially if we are doing something that we should not be doing. I feel like in both poems as a result of thing both situations face lost, helpless and alone. I think the major issue in the poems was a disconnection, reparation, and lack of wisdom. Life is full of happiness, sorrow, up’s, down’s, good moments, and unpleasant times. It’s our responsibility to overcome our obstacles and having a positive attitude forward challenge. The thing that they have in common is that in the “Home Burial” it’s the father, mother, and the son and in the “God’s Garden” it’s mankind or Adam, Eve, and God.
The difference in the poems is that in God’s garden because of their disobedience to God’s law and they were tempted by the gold flowers or the devil. Adam and Eve are moving apart from God’s presence. It is within our sinful nature that we desire to fulfil our self with that are contrary to our Christian belief.
However, in the Home Burial, the death of their child causes them a big problem in the family. Obviously, the husband and the wife they lack effective communication and they want to blame each other rather than listening to each other. They can’t come into agreement because the wife needs her husband to feel the same way she did and the husband cannot understand the way his wife is grieving. Even though they both impacted by the passing away of their son they still cross each other which makes it hard to reunite. If they have openness and respect their difference then it would have been easy to move forward.
Robert Frost perhaps has the most name identification of any American poet ever. His writing style was plain, but his poetic structures were complex. He was a famous poet, but he never worked his art for personal gain rather Frost dedicated a great deal of time and effort to present himself to his audience as a simple and rural poet and rarely exhibit the complication and darkness within. Robert Frost was the best known and most respected and favoured American poet of the time. He wrote about nature and rural life in a traditional yet complex style that appealed to a broad audience.
