A Minor Bird Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Frost Type: Poetry Views: 928

I have wished a bird would fly away,

And not sing by my house all day;Have clapped my hands at him from the door

When it seemed as if I could bear no more.The fault must partly have been in me.

The bird was not to blame for his key.And of course there must be something wrong

In wanting to silence any song.

The poet is lamenting over his silly work which is being distant from the nature by his own.

In this poem the speaker is mad at a bird for singing at his house and for being off key. He tries to control the bird by clapping at it, trying to silence it. The bird symbolizes man. specifically blacks and women. Because Robert was born in 1874 he was exposed to the Civil Rights Act and Women's Rights. Which is shown in this poem. That we should not silence people or try to control them.

This poem is about random thoughts or what is commonly known as a train of thought. The bird singing represents randoms thoughts that interrupt our normal train of thought. Like a song you can't get out of your head. Or something someone said a week ago that is still stuck in your head.

Its very simple and their is no hidden meaning. The narrator is depressed or sad, and the bird is annoying to him as often is the case when you are sad, even the most beautiful things can seem unwanted and intrusive, The narrator realizes that its not the bird that is the problem it is himself.

I\'m pretty sure that this poem talks about wanting to silence anything going on in the world. A miner bird could be a small (miner) bird or a bird with a harsh sound (A miner chord) however, in wanting to silence the chirping of the bird is derectly related to something within the narrator. as he says, even though it\'s hard fopr him to listne to it, it\'s not the bird\'s fault and he should let the bird sing his song whether it pleases him or not. it points to the socity, do not try to silence ANY song

As I think, this is not a nature poem.It has a social/political background.Why should Frost use the adjective \"Minor\" in front of the bird? Well, it is because he means not a bird, but minor class,poor and powerless people.The narrator here is a rich man and he doesn\'t like to care for poor people.This theme is evoked nicely by addressing the bird as \"he\".However, Robert Frost has cleverly tried to show the society that upper class people should care about the needy.

the bird is in the habit of singing by the speakers house all day.A birds music is usually very smoothing to the human ear.But ironically the music provokes the speaker.He does not enjoy the free gift of \'bird music\' by nature.He dispises the bird and it\'s music.

i think this has 2 meanings.the supeficial meaning is poet doesn\'t like birds & so that he chases the bird away.so according to my idea,the other meaning is that the poet is a major,powerful,strong one whreas the minor bird is small,powerless,innnocent one.in our modren society there are also powerful people as well as poor people.so powerful one don\'t like to hear poweless peoples\' suffring as minor bird\'s singing.so i think that\'s the undrelined meaning of this poem.

singing of a bird is natural.but the poet persona tries to stop the singing of bird.however the bird stops it\'s singing and fly away.but after the the poet persona understands that he has done something wrong and felt sorry for it.
THAT MEANS THE POET PERSONA TRIED TO GO AGAINST THE NATURE.BUT AFTER HE REALIZES IT CAN\'T BE DONE AND HE FELT SORRY FOR DOING SO.BUT IT IS TOO LATE.

The poem I think about a man who meditates in perfect silence to achieve enlightenment. Disturbed by the bird, he wished it had not been there. He tried to chase it away. But then he realizes that his action was contrary to its intention -- that of achieving the highest spiritual enlightenment. This realization, however, paves the way for his enlightenment. This, I think, may not be the meaning the poet had in his mind. But my explanation fits into the poem.

Robert Frost the American poet, Laureate poet starts the poem with delight and ends with wisdom. The poem starts with the delight of singing of a minor bird and ends with an understanding about the relationship between nature and modern man

their is a deeper meaning...it is about the racial discrimination or the social segregation of the society..since the poet named this a MINOR bird..if there is a minor one their should be a major one too....the poet tries to show us the condition which prevailed at that time...that is the deeper meaning other than the mechanical world and many more..

In the poem Minor Bird,frost talks about how man distances himself away from nature.The siniging of the bird irritates the man.Man hee represents men living restless lives and working hard in urban environment.the man is stressed and affected by social conditions

This poem is a nice poem that was written by Robert Frost. He is a nature poetist because minor bird is nature poem.

This poem is very beautiful. it depicts us how the city man couldnt able to respond to a piece of nature. the minor key is reffered here. because he is so mentally deppressed and he is getting annoyed when he listens to a bird chirping in front of his window. this poem also applies the regular frost theory that \"the poem begins with delight and ends with wisdom\"

the poem is all about a bird.but the message conveyed through it is so massive.the bird symbolises nature , happiness.the poet conveys that a person who hates nature is a disturbed person.he does not have self satisfaction at all.in the latter part of the poem says that he understand that he did something wrong.this shows the real nature of human nature. people always do wrong things, and finally understand that it is wrong. but by then they might be so late.

the comments here remind me of a friend who was in an English lit class that Frost visited. A student asked of "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening' what did Frost mean by "he gives his harness bells a shake?" Frost said, "I meant that the horse went like this," and he shook his body

I think this is a poem about a man who doesn't realize he is depressed. Maybe the bird refers to happy people in general, and in the poem, he can't bear happy people anymore, he just wants silence.
The man also recognizez there is something wrong, not with the bird (happy people) but with himself, but can't find the answer.
I think the man is simply depressed.

I love this poem for its play on words. he says "minor" which has 2 meanings. It could mean a minor in music like the tune the bird was singing. It could also mean minor as in its insignificant or not important. Very clever!

It's also about not knowing what you really want. Frost says "it seemed that I could bear no more," not realizing that it would actually be worse with nor song at all.

| Posted on 2010-03-08 | by a guest


.: :.

the poem isnt really about a bird. it about being careful of what you wish for. Frost is basically implying that the bird's song is beautiful but Frost is annoyed by it. He tries to make the bird fly away in the first part of the poem. But in the last stanza he reveals that he might miss the birds song once he flies away and want it back. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

i think it's about setting the girl free, giving her freedom. A bird will always wanted to fly, just like some girls who wanted first to find themselves and if she comes back she's really yours... because sometimes men tend to be possessive
