Robert a flower and a moth to a darker

Robert Frost’s word choice is also important to examine. His poem shifts from an innocent opening about a flower and a moth to a darker tone when he mentions the rigid satin cloth.     Robert Frost’s poem ‘Design’ ultimately argues that nature and humanity are ungoverned by God.  For instance, ” On a white heal-all, holding up a moth” he chose not just any flower but a heal-all, a blue flower with medicinal purposes.  The spider which was upon this marvelous flower happened to be the complete opposite, a machine designed to kill, who ended up with innocent moth hanging from its piercing, blood drinking fangs.  Frost’s poem ‘Out, Out-‘ also uses this type of word choice.  One example of this is, “Leaped out at the boys hand,”. This makes the poem interesting as it describes how the saw met the boys hand and makes the saw seem like a wild animal, that has been turned loose. “The boys first outcry was a rueful laugh” catches our attention as the boy is seemingly laughing after he has just put his hand into the saw as if it were a joke of some case.  It gives it a sense of dark humor in a way, that makes the reader question the boys actions.  He manages to use word choice in both poems very wisely, adding an alternative meaning to many lines.2nd body paragraph: ImageryRobert Frost’s use of imagery helps us imagine the story and scene as he tells it through this poem. One example of this is “the buzz saw snarled and rattled.” This is an example of an onomatopoeia and helps us imagine what the saw would sound like and how loud it would be.  It also make seem almost as if the saw were alive and angry. Another effective phrase is “sweet scented stuff,” as it appeals to our sense of smell. By using alliteration, Frost helps us to imagine the smell of the wood as it came out of the saw. It helps us to paint a picture of the farm and imagine ourselves there. “The life from spilling,” is a metaphor for the blood spilling from the boys hand and Frost uses it to show how quickly the boy was losing his such valuable life.  In the poem Design he also using such imagery to create a sense of witnessing these acts in person.  ” I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,” is an example of this which helps the reader think of a blood thirsty, viscous spider camouflaged just watching its next victim.  “And dead wings carried like a paper kite” which paints a picture of the dead moth so deprived of life, just gliding seamlessly.  He uses imagery in both poems to create a sense of being present and witnessing the story before your own eyes.3rd body paragraph: Theme Designs imagery of a white spider suggests the theme is that even in evil there is some goodness and purity.  For instance, ” What had that flower to do with being white” this demonstrates how sometimes things are just meant to be, the spider wasn’t doing anything wrong it was simply getting a meal for itself. In ‘Out ,Out-‘ , the theme is that sometimes even though attempting to resist death, dust turns to dust.  Robert frost also makes the reader questions, is work simply a way to delay death?  We focus our whole life on working, only to end up in a coffin. These two poems differ in this way, one suggest there is reason for death and the other contradicts this idea by stating that death is just part of life.  “Little—less—nothing!—and that ended it. No more to build on there. And they, since they were not the one dead, turned to their affairs.”  This is a perfect example on how in the poem “Out, Out” they don’t even seem to care for the boys death, as if it weren’t a big deal.  “I found a dimpled spider, fat and white, On a white heal-all, holding up a moth” quoted from the poem “Design” shows Robert’s use of the color white, meaning innocence and purity is turned around. Instead of giving this color to wholesome, pure objects he gives them to objects that are the reverse, which are death, darkness and unholy objects.
