hi

WOULD YOU HELP ME TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS BASE ON POEM OF "DESERT

PLACES" BY ROBERT FROST?
1. Which stanza is most negative? Consider synonyms.
2. How emotionally powerful is the word "scare"(line 13 and line 16)?
3. What multiple denotations of the word "benighted" are functional in the

poem?
4. How does the etymology of "blanker" add to its force in this context?
5. What denotations of "spirits"(line7) are relevant here?
6. Who are "they"(line 13) who can create fear by talking about the
emptiness of space? fear of what?
7. What are the "desert places"(line 16) within the speaker that may be
compared to literal emptiness of space?

It's all bollocks:

Poetry is bollocks. It's some pompous ass who has convinced a bunch of
other pompous asses that there are layers upon layers of hidden meaning in
some b.s. lines he scribbled down one day while he was on a bender. If you
think you have to read something ten times and know how to pick up every
little poetic device in order to understand it, then you 1) are fooling
yourself and 2) need a hobby, preferably one that involves other people.
