Within every character, in every scene, on either side of town, important lessons can be learned to turn the community around. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, several roles portrayed could use some lessons being depicted in the poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay” written by Robert Frost. Tough hoods on the East Side of town and the snobs of the West Side, also known as Greasers and Socs have very different stories but could learn a lot from each other if they were willing to put aside their differences. “Nothing Gold Can Stay” is all about the diminishing of the gold soul you had the chance to keep. A mass group of characters from the novel can take the themes presented in the poem to heart, whether they’re from the East or West side.
Robert Frost’s poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay” explores concepts of nature and human behaviour. This poem substantiates that the things in life, that should be cherished, have the shortest lives. Frost depicts that the “early leaf’s flower” is the most beautiful sight, but only “lasts an hour.” This poem celebrates that both nature and humans are the purest in the beginning, but as life moves on they become corrupted or exploited.
Donald Hall's "Without" explains to the reader's the painful process that he had to go through losing his wife to leukemia. From the way Hall spoke about his wife in the book she seemed like she was very charming and someone that meant the world to him. They both had many things in common but one of the things that they both admired was writing poetry. In the poem "A Beard for a Blue Pantry", is where it simply said that his wife wrote poetry about the beard Hall grew. This book is written in past tense
Not only did the narrator explain the setting; he also said the word behind the poem. Gold. This relates to the theme of the story because the author is trying to tell us that nothing gold can stay and that gold is a rare color. In the movie at the point when Ponyboy recites the poem in a beautiful setting, the camera was on close up on Ponyboy, proving that this is an important part of the story in which we assume that the character is trying to tell us something. He is trying to reach to us, and explain his thought.
Holding On Thinking that everything in life will be optimal forever just is not realistic. Robert frost elaborates on that idea in his poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay”. He tells us that we can not have everything the way we want it. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton relates very well to Robert’s poem. It seems that once something finally goes right in Ponyboy’s life it quickly diminishes.
At first glance, the two poems seem alike, with many parallels corresponding to the importance of nature and its impact on human beings. Although both poems have different tonal approaches, they both come to the same conclusion that nature is a necessity to all human beings. Wordsworth’s livid tone in “The World is Too Much with us” presents his true feelings towards the materialistic ideals during the Industrialization period whereas “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” is more light and simple. Wordsworth begins his poem “The World is Too Much with us” by mentioning that humans are always “getting and spending, we lay waste our powers; little we see in Nature that is ours” (Lines 2-3).
In literal forms this means Spring is beautiful. In metaphoric terms this means Humans are born innocent. When Frost uses gold he is saying innocence. Johnny matches this the best way possible. When the boys won the rumble they went to tell Johnny and he said “Useless… fighting’s no good.”
August Bank Holiday, the day of the explosion, he visited the graves of those killed in the explosion, apologising on behalf of his family and begging their forgiveness. The rest of the year, he travelled around the country, following a well-worn path of his own making. For food and shelter in barns or outhouses, he would chop wood, do gardening, tell novel tales, or lend a hand at the many farms where he stopped.
Robert Frost’s Nothing Gold Can Stay is about the color gold and how hard it is for nature to hold this particular color. Nature’s leaf blooms to a flower, but that moment in time is short, because things that bloom can also die quickly like the crocuses that appear at the beginning of spring. The color gold appears again when dawn is used in the poem, but like every other line, the gold of dawn soon fades to the blue of day. This poem has a rather simple theme of impermanence. This is a rather broad theme, as it could be the impermanence of beauty or good things that fade off after a short time.
Though Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories like, The Cask of Amontillado, to his poems like, The Raven, Poe’s shows his writing style to use physical imagery and connotative syntax to show ,imagery in his writing. Throughout his life, Poe had always lived through the most chaotic and evil of time. His parents died while he was 3 years old. After his parents died, he lived with another family member who never accepted him as their own son. Later on in life, Poe had served in the military and at that point he started writing poems.
Not all people can hold their thoughts in, those with a weary mind will get cracked if they do so. But people eager for glory will have to close their sorrowing mind in breast-coffer. Homeland will not allow them to stay. He buried his gold-friend long time ago.
