Robert Frost was a philosophical writer who had underlining meanings in the
lines of his poetry. In this poem, Frost uses imagery as a literary device
to show the reader both metaphorically and literally, the tone of the poem.
An example of the used imagery is the weather; when the speaker say’s, “I
have walked out in rain – and back in rain” he is explaining how the rain
is beating down on him both outside and inside, and that he can’t escape
it’s relentless thrashing on his body and emotions. The night sets a somber
mood for the poem, and the reader see’s the speaker as an emotionally sad
and deprived person. Frost uses an iambic rhyme scheme, and uses repletion
with the words, “I have.” The main idea of this poem is the speaker’s
loneliness, and his attempt to ponder in his thoughts, though no one hears,
he becomes acquainted with the night.
