    • POEM: Fire And Ice by Robert Frost (2/25/2010 5:33:00 PM)

      I think frost is commenting on both the power of human nature and the elements. Fire and ice is used literally and metaphorically.Metaphorically speaking he uses fire to symbolise passion, desire, lust and ice to symbolise hate, destruction and indifference.Both these emotions have the capacity to cause the downfall of the human race. On a more literal level he is musing over the capacity of the elements to wreak destruction on mankind.I think the question is; is he talking about the end of the world in a literal sense or is he eluding to the loss of hope. He had lost his wife i believe shortly before writing this poem.There is a melancholic thread that runs throughout and a sense of hopelessness. His final analysis is that in the end it matters not how it ends. Vey sad.
