Stars Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Frost Type: Poetry Views: 2604

A Boy's Will1913How countlessly they congregate

O'er our tumultuous snow,

Which flows in shapes as tall as trees

When wintry winds do blow!--As if with keenness for our fate,

Our faltering few steps on

To white rest, and a place of rest

Invisible at dawn,--And yet with neither love nor hate,

Those stars like some snow-white

Minerva's snow-white marble eyes

Without the gift of sight.

This poem discusses the frailty and imperfections of human life. Frost uses the stars as a metaphor to the endless number of mortal existences. Line 1, “How countlessly they congregate” shows that just like the stars, there are so many lives that it is impossible to count them. There are so many people in the world that everyday, some one lays dead or dying. Line 2, “O'er our tumultuous snow” tells about how hectic and disorderly humans can be. In the second stanza, Frost writes:
“As if with keenness for our fate,
Our faltering few steps on
To white rest, and a place of rest
Invisible at dawn,--“
The third line, “…a place of rest…” refers to a destination that all humans must eventually venture-death. Finally, the third stanza is an allusion to Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom (Athena in Greek mythology). The very last line, “Without the gift of sight” means that there is often failure to see how precious our lives really
are.
