great flood

i thought the poem was about the great flood because it talked about water
and how someone had better be prepared for rage (Noah)

I had to do this for class, and we discussed 3 main interpretations of the
1. Frost was very big in his life on people being in harmony with nature,
and this poem could be interpreted as nature releasing it's wrath on us for
our mistreatment of it.
2.The Biblical aspect is that "put out the light" is a twisted form of "and
then there was light", what God said in Genesis when creating the world.
The idea would be that God said "put out the light" one last time,
signaling the end of the world, which would make this poem apocalyptic.
This is the most popular interpretation.
3. The lesser known interpretation could be that "put out the light" is a
quote from Shakespeare's play "Othello", in which a man is convinced by a
jealous man that his wife was cheating on him, so he killed his wife. Just
before he suffocated her, he said "put out the light", therefore giving the
poem a possible meaning of murder. The huge storm is in reference to God's
wrath for a murder committed.
