Here is a list of metaphors that Robert Frost would be:
Robert Frost would be a parrot. Frost’s poetry style mimics other poets’ such as William Wordsworth and James Dickney. Even though Robert Frost has his own unique style of poetry, there are many times when he alludes to other poets and copies their style of writing.
Robert Frost would be a tree. Robert Frost continuously talks about nature in his poems, but the most frequent plant he talks about are trees. Frost seems to show great love for trees, thus the reason why he would best represent a tree.
Robert Frost would be a pair of pink boxers. He was an unknown poet during his early years and when he came back from England he suddenly became a respected American poet. He was a hidden poet that was revealed like pink boxers hidden underneath the clothes and then shown in public.
Robert Frost would be the sport, tennis. Although he wrote free verse poems, he was a poet who was strict about form. Tennis is a sport with strict and specific rules that must be followed in order to have a legit tennis match. He once said “free verse is like playing tennis without a net,” and Frost was always about playing tennis. He abided to the rules of specific structures.
Robert Frost would be ramen. His poems are strict and definite in structure like ramen. Furthermore, Frost’s poems are about things a common man knows: nature, landscapes, depression, and making life decisions.
Robert Frost would be the colour green. His poems commonly talk about forests and the beauty of nature. And plants are typically associated with the colour green.
Robert Frost would be the shape of a square. A square must have four equal sides and four 90 degree angles.; the character of a square is very specific. Similarly, Frost strictly follows formats of poems. For Shakespearean sonnet, Frost always has iambic pentameter, rhyme scheme, and fourteen lines.
Robert Frost would smell like the rain. The unique smell of nature that can only be produced after rain. Robert Frost’s style of poetry is unique as he describes the rural areas of the U.S. by using colloquialism such as in the his poem The Death of the Hired Man.
Robert Frost would be a tree house. With nature being Frost’s “go-to” in his poems, a house on top of a tree would represent him perfectly. A house in the woods surrounded with wild life and green ties in strongly with Robert Frost’s poetry.
Robert Frost would be the word emotional. His poems are refer to strong emotions of love, regret, or sadness. In his poem Acquainted with the Night an emotion of loneliness and depression is evoked. Powerful emotion is evoked in all of Frost’s poems because of his past. The numerous times when Frost has experienced depression is manifested through his poems, thus making Frost “emotional.”
Robert Frost would be the musical instrument, piccolo. The piccolo is a small instrument that produces a loud and high pitch sound compared to its size. Robert Frost was a humble man whose poems was lodged into people’s minds. He did not physically appear as a powerful or courageous figure, but his work thrived and impacted the lives of many readers.
Robert Frost would be the season, autumn. Although it could be argued that spring represents Robert Frost, autumn is more fitting because of Frost’s tone in his poems. Autumn is a season where the trees begin shedding their foliage and the cold winter is soon to come. The season can be related to feelings of sorrow as trees lose their beauty and are left naked; animals such as the bear hibernate, thus disappear for awhile. Frost’s poems evoke similar emotions of sadness and wistfulness; a happy man who is now depressed because of certain tragic events.
Robert Frost would be a Ford Model T car. The Ford Model T was the first car to be mass produced. The model was different from previous cars as it combined the look of a 19th century car but used modern techniques of interchangeable parts. Similarly, Robert Frost is a poet with a unique style of writing who adapted both 19th century American poetry and modernism.
Robert Frost would be the natural phenomenon, fog. Fog obscures images, thus stops one from directly identifying what the object amidst the fog might be. This is similar to Frost’s style of poetry; at times, he subtly refers to themes or ideas, making his message unclear and difficult to comprehend. In his poem Mending Walls the narrator’s urge to not re-building the wall is shown from the indirect hints of unknown causes that break the wall down.
