Love And A Question Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Frost Type: poem Views: 147


A stranger came to the door at eve,
And he spoke the bridegroom fair.
He bore a green-white stick in his hand,
And, for all burden, care.
He asked with the eyes more than the lips
For a shelter for the night,
And he turned and looked at the road afar
Without a window light.

The bridegroom came forth into the porch
With, 'Let us look at the sky,
And question what of the night to be,
Stranger, you and I.'
The woodbine leaves littered the yard,
The woodbine berries were blue,
Autumn, yes, winter was in the wind;
'Stranger, I wish I knew.'

Within, the bride in the dusk alone
Bent over the open fire,
Her face rose-red with the glowing coal
And the thought of the heart's desire.

The bridegroom looked at the weary road,
Yet saw but her within,
And wished her heart in a case of gold
And pinned with a silver pin.

The bridegroom thought it little to give
A dole of bread, a purse,
A heartfelt prayer for the poor of God,
Or for the rich a curse;

But whether or not a man was asked
To mar the love of two
By harboring woe in the bridal house,
The bridegroom wished he knew.

I personally think that the bride is in love with another man, and the groom knows it. He wonders if it is right of him to mar the love of his now wife, and this other man. Even though he loves her with all his heart, she doesn\'t feel the same. He wants to pin her down, so he can have her heart for himself.

I think the question is one of ethics. His desire to help the unfortunate man seems to battle with his desire to protect his wife. They\'re both important to the man, as he seems to take time to get to know the stranger, but in the end he decides not to chance it, so he gives him some food and money and keeps him in his prayers, as it\'s the best he can ethically do for the man.

I believe that the stranger really is that of which seems to be implied, a weary traveler. The bridegroom has just been married, and he wishes to join his new spouse on the porch. He is now torn between enjoying this one time moment with his beloved, or harboring this traveler for the night....

The title of the poem is the basis on analyzing this. This is a ballad poem so its telling a story. The story is about a stranger who has nothing to stay in. The bridegroom was thinking what to do whether he will allow the stranger to come in and stay with them for the rest of the night or to give the stranger money and so, the bride and the bridegroom could still be in comfort. The title suggests that the bridegroom\'s LOVE for his wife is very intense. The QUESTION is this: Shall they allow the stranger to come in to show mercy or shall they not for they might be in danger. Knowing that the stranger has no place to go as described in the poem, the question must be answered. That\'s it! :)

according to me,the poem is about a poor bridegroom who is now going to support a family. the stranger is the tension of all this and i.e. carrying a green stick depicting money.Also the bridegroom is wishing that his bride would be a little supportive of his financial conditions and be patient , but for now the road ahead is all dark and windowless depicting zero chances of any help from any one else

I am new to poetry and the \"harboring woe\" had me struggling to find an interpretation.
I would agree with guest post from 02-23-2009. Harboring woe would be to allow fear and uncertainty to enter the situation and mar what could otherwise be a cherished event

you don't either. have some respect for the people who want to analyze it through their personal lives.
now, i think this poem is about robert frost finding a bride and her groom asking if they can stay at his place for awhile

I think the poem is about the bridegroom meeting his own fear (that's who the "stranger" would be, suggesting that the man is unfamiliar with fear). His fear would be of "underperforming" when consecrating his marriage. He does not want to "mar" their marriage by ruining the wedding night. The "road" he looks down is, in my opinion, his own foresight into their marriage; it is, however, dark and he cannot see down it - showing he is unsure of where their marriage will end up. But it is all to start tonight and he doesn't want to mess it up at the start of the journey - hence the fear and the stranger. This poem was about a different time when every man and woman lost their virginity on their wedding night. Therefore, it would have been seen as even a bigger deal than nowadays. I think this is why the poem is harder to interpret for the people of today as the wedding night is more associated with "the first time as a married couple." In Frost's day the poem would have had a more obvious message and men would have been able to relate to it more easily.

.: My interpretation :.

I think the bridegroom is contemplating whether the stranger at the door was hired to interrupt him and his bride from their consecrating their marriage.
