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.

He had to dig his way up through the snow just to get out. When I pictured his shelter in my head it was a decent size tree and the door was a pretty big door. So when he got snowed in it made me think maybe his door was low to the ground or maybe the snow was just really high. Visualize: When I read the part in the book where it first mentions the Catskill Mountains I just picture what they looked like from a distance. When I pictured them I pictured the mountains that are around us except high and bigger.
