What is the setting of the poem ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening’ by Robert Frost?
The poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is set in a dark evening, probably near the winter solstice, in a quiet and secluded spot. The narrator has stopped on his way in a countryside wood which is covered with snow. It’s not clear whether he is going to his workplace or returning home. The narrator and his horse are the only living creatures seen around and the sounds of the snowfall and the mild wind are the only audible sounds. A dark and deep forest and the silence create an awkwardly mysterious atmosphere but the speaker finds it beautiful and enjoyable.
