Meeting And Passing Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Frost Type: poem Views: 82


As I went down the hill along the wall
There was a gate I had leaned at for the view
And had just turned from when I first saw you
As you came up the hill. We met. But all
We did that day was mingle great and small
Footprints in summer dust as if we drew
The figure of our being less that two
But more than one as yet. Your parasol
Pointed the decimal off with one deep thrust.
And all the time we talked you seemed to see
Something down there to smile at in the dust.
(Oh, it was without prejudice to me!)
Afterward I went past what you had passed
Before we met and you what I had passed.

I like the post from 12-17-10, suggesting that they each need to be more aware of the other\'s experienced before parting. I thought that use of the word \"decimal,\" and not a comma, was more indicative of the financial situation of each of the participants. If that is true, does it mean that they are intended for each other, aware of it, and that her financial status will lift his up? This idea is different than what I have seen others posting online, and I am curious what people think. Thanks!

I\'m not looking for a summary. I\'m looking for the theme of the sonnet. What is it?

3. A man is looking down a hill, sees a girl approaching, and after she comes up the hill, they go for a walk, with her smiling as she looks at the ground. The phrase ďas if we drew the figure of our being less than two but more than one as yet.Ē means theyíre in a relationship, but it hasnít gotten to anything as serious as marriage yet. (There arenít quite two of them, but they arenít one yet either.) Then they each go the way the other had come, which might be hinting at the fact that they wonít be going anywhere serious in the relationship.

It is not about a day but about a relationship. They came to each other from different directions, different experiences. They each wanted something different from the relationship and she saw that it wasn\'t going to work and ended it. The thrust of the parasol defined the differences between them. Afterward, she had to learn the life lessons he had already experienced and he had to experience hers.

This poem is more about meeting someone for the first time. The writer seems to have an attraction to someone he sees at a distance, and as they come closer, they exchange a few words. And it appears that the writer has said something to make the woman laugh, shyley looking down at the ground. It seems after their brief run in, though they have both enjoyed eachothers company, they go there seperate ways. This poem could be taken to have either a hint of a dissapointing ending, seeing how the speaker has not ended up with the woman. Or this poem could be seen as having a more happy ending, showing some content in the idea that though they go their own ways, they have not forgotten eachother, as they walk past what each has walked.

the poem is about a guy meeting a girl for the first time, whether the first time that day or ever. they meet and hang out all day, mingling, and at the end of the day, he wants more out of the relationship (i.e. marriage or something of that nature) and she thinks he moves too fast, so she breaks it off and they go their separate ways. there is a lot of ambiguity in this poem, so in those parts, you just have to figure out what works best for you.
