I agree paartually to a few of these comments but from my own study of the
poem and other works of Robert Frosts, I have come to think of "The door in
the Dark" as a metaphor. The person in search of the door representing the
reader and essentiallly every human one earth, the room representing the
world and the door representing the truth about life. In my opinion this
poem relates most to teens because this metaphor is about those teen years
where you are still blind folded by innocent(the darkness) and are just
being exposed to the truth bit by bit or more appropriately hit by hit (of
the door) to the darkness and dangers that are in everyday life.

I think that this is a really great poem. I am not sure why Patty got so
upset at you Taylor, I think you will make a great parent, and I think both
of your analasis on the poem is great :)

no way

this poem is about becoming openminded, turning on the lights, and seeing
the true world around you rather than walking around in the dark, blind to
dangers and constantly trying to save face. this is not about protecting
your children taylor, id hate to be your child. I almost saw it as a little
spiteful towards religion....but maybe thats just me. and it is.
