this poem reflects the anxiety felt by Frost in terms of urban expansion.
The necessary evils of progress and technology are contrasted with the
death of the natural world at the hands of men. It's a double edge sword
in that we create and destruct the environment around us for the sake of
our own attempts at creating a world that is connected but detached from
the very thing that sustains us. The line gang expresses a universal fear
of progress and the consequences of technological advances. Alienation,
anxiety and fear comprise this short poem and gives us a look into our own
era in which leaps and bounds are made daily for the advancement of
humanity. But we are left with more questions than answers in terms of
what kind of future we're building.

Frost in his poem "The Line Gang" from his book "Western Interval" laments
the destruction of the forests "less
cut than broken" by the "gangs" putting up telephone and telegraph poles.
"plant dead trees(poles)for the living and the dead" He decries these
boisterous vulgar workmen who destroy the beauty of the wild he foresees
towns which will suplant the wilds. His use of the negative spurrious
lexical term gang asserts his opinion. Frost pleads his case against
unplanned changing times In the folowing poem his fears are expressed.
Now too much depends
And easy chairs
And winding stairs
Deeds of Violence
Too little depends on
Listenng to silence
Migrating fauna and
Gazing at the horizons
