Poetry uses sound effects to express emotion and ideas. Read

Resolved Question:

Poetry uses sound effects to express emotion and ideas. Read the poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost 1847-1963-(see below)
****Describe two qualities in the language of this poem that give it sound effects.
Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of east wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep.
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep.8

Mijcar :

1. The sentences are long and soft, suggesting an adagio quality, an expansiveness and stillness.

2. The poem is filled with sibilants, extending both the idea of quietude and a softly falling snow. Almost like a mother saying "shh" to her child at bed time.
