Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” takes the reader on a journey through a man’s experience of traveling to the snowy woods with his horse. Frost builds up the relationship with the horse to where he is able to use it to exemplify his points about not only the condition of the area they are in, but the feelings of the man looking into the woods. Since the woods are isolated and quiet, they give the speaker a chance to escape from his responsibilities and contemplate his life choices. In the first stanza, Frost emphasizes that the man stops at a house in a village where he is watching the woods become covered in snow. In line 2, Frost says, “His house is in the village though.” Since he is in a village, the reader knows that the area is clear from the chaos of city life.

Into The Woods The musical “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a metaphor for life in many ways, but the most prominent one is the woods symbolizing life itself.

Just as we must take risks in our personal lives to accomplish our goals, being that is the only way to achieve what we aspire to do.
“A cool breeze came up behind us, sending shivers along the spines of the mesquite trees.” The text contains elements of the unconscious process of shivering and allows Taylor to project her inner feelings onto the landscape. The language mirrors how Taylor’s mind works and shows this by sending “shivers along the spines of the mesquite trees” as well as up her own spine, almost personifying the trees. Kingsolver’s descriptions of the natural landscape, shows her consciousness of the environment. “The whole Tucson Valley lay in front of us, resting in its cradle of mountains”. Her phrase, “resting in its cradle of mountains” makes an analogy of the valley to a baby.

“An Entrance to the Woods” is an essay by Wendell Berry about the serenity and importance of nature in his life. In this essay, the author uses tone shifts from dark to light to convey his idea of finding rebirth and rejuvenation through nature. In the beginning of the essay, Berry has left civilization for the first time in a while, and finds himself missing human company and feeling “inexplicably sad” (671). This feeling of sadness is in part from the woods itself, and partly due to Berry leaving the hustle and bustle of normal life in the cities, and the violent change from constant noise to silence causes him to feel lonely in the woods. As a result of feeling alone in the woods, the tone of the essay is dark and brooding, as seen through Berry’s somber diction and mood, as seen on page 671: “And then a heavy feeling of melancholy and lonesomeness comes over me.
Nature reflects the way a person feels, but can’t give them any guidance. In the beginning of the book, Hester Prynne is being shamed by the whole town, Hawthorne writes that Hester sees someone she knows walking along the edges of the forest, we later find out that the man she sees is Roger Chillingworth.

Toward the middle of the book Hester was in the forest and she took her “A” off and also let her hair down, she grew very happy, thus causing the forest to become happy. Hawthorne is illustrating the fact that nature reflects our mood.
With regards to Robert Frost’s creation, the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowing Evening” is an overlapping of a series of conceptual metaphors at global and local scale that conceptualize Death as a JOURNEY TO A FINAL DESTINATION, a SLEEP, a DEPARTURE, a REST. At the literal level the poem describes a man on his journey that stops by some woods covered in winter decorum and is tempted to halt his journey for a while. However, even if he is exhausted and wishes to fall asleep, the traveler remembers that he has obligations and responsibilities that he cannot abandon. Thus, on the literal level the speaker has a long trip home, however the metaphorical level suggests that the “miles to go” means life; while his desire to “sleep” stands for death. The world-weary speaker is tired of life and things only death could give him peace and rest that would be “lovely, dark, and deep” Still, it is too early for him to depart as he has not fulfilled all his duties.
