Painted with brown and darker murkier colors, the half tree looks almost like it was hit with lightning or another natural occurrence instead of purposefully taken down by humans. The half-trees could have been included for numerous reasons such as the artist dismantling a possible notion that trees only get taken done by humans, or even so far as comparing a man’s power to chopping down a tree to something as sublime as a natural occurrence. Looking at the painting structurally, the artists employs techniques such as space, scale, and medium to further elude to the overall point of the painting. Using fall colors to depict the natural landscape and the intermittently matching humans, the color palette used by the artist gives off an overall tone of calmness and serenity. The land as it recedes into the background of the painting, shifts to the lighter blue tones as the forest gets less dense and is replaced with patches of clear land with specific sections of dense trees.

Frost utilizes analogous imagery throughout his poems; specifically in this poem, he uses natural imagery like the woods and roads to signify these themes. The woods represent indecision and instinct. Everywhere in literature, the plots of novels and poems alike contain characters lost in the woods. Similarly, in “The Road Not Taken”, the woods represent indecision while an adrift traveler wanders lost in the woods (Rukhaya).

So brief a journey would bring thee from a world where thou hast been most wretched, to one where thou mayest still be happy! ” (Hawthorne, Scarlet 92) the forest is shown as a relief from the Puritan rules and authority.
In Jean Toomer’s three-part work, Cane, the reader is introduced in the first section to alternating short stories and poems. The first poem of Cane, “Reapers,” appears at a cursory glance to follow one of the themes of the novel: harvest. However, the ambiguity of the words offers alternate readings of the poem which enrich and enhance its original reading. In first reading “Reapers,” one can see how easy it is to suggest the poem is about harvest and agriculture. The reader is introduced to “Black reapers” that are “sharpening scythes.” The reapers then “start their silent swinging” while horses pull a mower through the field.
