Frost’s “The Silken Tent

Frost’s “The Silken Tent”

In this poem I found myself so attracted to the idea of someone becoming free from their own sin weighing down on them and becoming free. The way the narrator spoke of the tent and certain words that Frost’s himself use only deepen my explanation. I was very interested in the different type of description we had. Because it’s amazing how people can view one poem in so many different ways. I look forward to these discussions because I find myself being so sure of my own descriptions never expecting to have someone else make me doubt my own analysis. I may try to over analyze a poem and in the process drift away from the simple meaning of it. I think that’s what I realize in the class s’ discussion of this poem. The poet doesn’t necessarily always have to have such a deep and complicated meaning, perhaps he was just referring to a tent.
