The poem "Out Out" becomes realistic in sense.The lyrical of the poem is
simply easy for the reader to get on."the buzz saw snarled..." describes
the noise and the hardship in using the machine.Also the poem is sensual
and more relaxed ,proved by the mention of "breeze"and"sweet scented
stuff".The most sympathetic quote used by Frost is "though a child at
heart..."

analysis and comment on "out out" by Robert Frost

the theme of this poem is uncertainly and unpredictably of life which may
be accidentally ended at any moment.the story of a boy who is doing hard
work that is not suitable with his age,suddenly whose life destroyed. the
poem has allusion to the "out out bref candle"of shakspeare and a reference
to the "macbeth" story.another is the word "supper",it allusion to the
"last supper painting of Leonardo da vinci"

is very good.

I feel that Robert Frost appreciates manual labour over the 'buzz saw' in
this poem...he stresses on the unimaginative quality of the machine,its
lack of thought. After all its a mechanical object programmed by man to
"[make] dust and [drop] stove-length sticks of wood".he also personifies
the 'buzz saw' to a wild predatory animal "The buzz-saw snarled and rattled
in the yard". He finally shows the value of the 'hand' by the unexpected
death of the boy.."He saw all spoiled" he was dead the moment he lost his
hand as he could work no more.he,without his hand,was useless to society.he
could no longer play the role of the breadwinner too.there is a reference
to child labour too. "...big boy
Doing a man's work, though a child at heart" he was yet immature to do this
task which he performs merely to earn a living...not for its joy or
pleasure.his 'sister', too,is " in her apron ".perhaps she too was a child
assigned to do a task beyond her age.I hope I'm not wrong!

I agree with megan from australia. yea i feel that mourning there son was a
luxury which means even the loss of a child cant stop life from moving on
cause life is always gonna move on.

I totally agree with Rohan Gaddh. In fact, I liked his comment better than
the poem itself \m/

i fully agree with you that it is we who disect a poem whereas a poet must
have just expressed an emotion.......Is it a must that there should be some
hidden meaning or metaphor in every poem? I read 'out and out' and just
felt very sad and may be angry at the callousness which exists all around
us. I feel this is what frost is feeling......sad and angry.
