      After Apple Picking describes Frost’s sleep-wake condition in which he blends the reality world with the dream world. The story opens with the exhaustion of the apple picker (the poet) . One evening while picking apples in his garden the poet felt exhausted and fatigue led him to drowsiness. Scent of the ripe apples in the atmosphere lost him in dream wherein he sees numerous apples of gigantic size. The vision is so clear and vivid, because he can not differentiate whether he visualizes dream or reality. With this intoxicating smell and fatigue the poet is overwhelmed with sleep. Therefore, he is lost in the world of dream full of magnified apples more than ten thousand. The vividness of the dream is elevated through the rumbling sound of the apples in the cellar & it’s easily audible to him. So it’s all too good to be believed.

      From my point of view, like in the poem “Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening”, here sleep means death. Then the drowsiness refers encroaching death. The poet emphasizes that the world of Dream and Reality are correlated & the promises or commitments are fulfilled in dream which remain unfulfilled in the real world, “Of the great harvest I myself desired” but in reality he did not have enough apple even to fulfill his barrel, “There is a barrel I didn’t fill”.
