Comparing Peace In A Poison Tree And Mending Wall

122 Words1 Page
Peace is a mutual topic in “A Poison Tree” and “Mending Wall.” Blake and Frost both present different methods of introducing peace to their audience. One example of this is when Blake states that “I told it not, my wrath did grow” (4). He takes his audience through his inner struggle with peace and how his anger and sadness continued to grow. Frost does the same thing but in an outer manner. He discloses, “I let my neighbor know beyond the hill; /And on a day we meet to walk the line /And set the wall between us once again” (12-14). Frost and his neighbors are united in the battle for peace, whereas Blake is dealing with that same troublesome battle alone.
