Fireflies In The Garden Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Frost Type: poem Views: 124

Sponsored Links



Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,

And here on earth come emulating flies,

That though they never equal stars in size,

(And they were never really stars at heart)

Achieve at times a very star-like start.

Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.

Frost could also disapprove the Fireflies attempts at being stars. The word emulating, match or surpass typically by imitation, has a negative connotation which changes the entire meaning of the poem. The garden is an allusion to the Garden of Eden making God the stars and humans fireflies. Like Adam and Eve in the garden, humans have a pure start such as that as God but we can never be the same and trying to be God is sacrilegious. Considering this information, it is clear that in this case, Frost is attempting to scold the fireflies so to say. The fireflies will never have means to be stars and will never be as great.

Frost consistently weaved his faith into his work, this poem is no different. I think that the fireflies represent us, here on earth, and the star represents Christ, up in Heaven. Though we are not perfect, we strive for a Christ-like representation of his love. We "were never really stars at heart" but that's okay, because we "achieve at times a very star-like start." Because of our sin, we cannot "sustain the part," the part being emulating Christ's love.

This poem is about imperfect people trying to be perfect, hence the fireflies trying to be like the stars. We are human, flawed. We make mistakes. We try to be better than what we are though, and that is beautiful, even though at the end of the day we are what and who we are.

i think that Frost is tring to show us how even though fireflies are very small they can also be considered starts? idk im confused :(

I think the poem is simply Robert Frost\'s observation: fireflies look somewhat like stars, yet they are closer,smaller,and constantly moving-unlike stars that remain distant and still. Haven\'t you ever been lying in a lawn chair staring at the night sky? First the stars come out, then the fireflies come out and at first you might think they were stars too until they continue moving around. It\'s just his pretty way of making an observation of a simple thing so often overlooked.

hi i think this about fireflies and how they can be like stars which means that no matter how small you are, you can be something big.
