What does the ‘woods’ symbolize in the poem “Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost?
‘Woods’ in this poem symbolizes two things:
Firstly, it symbolizes our distractions in various ways and temptations of life. We often get distracted by these things in the journey of our life and thus end up failing to reach our destination, our goals.
secondly, woods symbolizes the beautiful aspects of this life. We need to enjoy those, but have no time to spend with it as we have ‘miles to go before we sleep’.
‘Woods’ symbolize the beauty and mystery of life that most people are too busy to appreciate.
