Sample paper-02 class-XII  (1).png

What is the tone of the extract? How does it reflect the poet’s attitude towards the roadside stand and the traffic? Explain with reference to the text. 

Answer written by the student:

The tone of the extract is sarcastic and critical. It reflects the poet’s attitude towards the roadside stand and the traffic as being incompatible and indifferent to each other.

Step-by-step explanation of the answer is:

To answer this question, we need to identify the tone of the extract and explain how it reflects the poet’s attitude towards the roadside stand and the traffic. 🚗🚜

  • Tone is the attitude or emotion that a writer conveys through their choice of words, images, and sounds. It can be positive, negative, or neutral, depending on the writer’s purpose and perspective. 😊😠😐
  • In this extract, Robert Frost uses a sarcastic and critical tone to express his feelings about the roadside stand and the traffic. He uses words and phrases that imply mockery, contempt, and irony, such as “polished”, “mind ahead”, “out of sorts”, “marred”, “artless”, “turned wrong”, “silver warts”, and “beauty rest”. He also uses contrast and comparison to highlight the differences and conflicts between the two elements. 🙃
  • The poet’s tone reflects his attitude towards the roadside stand and the traffic as being incompatible and indifferent to each other. He shows that the traffic represents the modern and urban society that is fast-paced, superficial, and selfish. It passes by the roadside stand without paying attention or stopping to buy anything. It also ruins the natural beauty of the landscape with its noise and pollution. 😒
  • The poet also shows that the roadside stand represents the rural and poor people who are trying to make a living by selling their products. They are simple, honest, and hardworking, but they are also desperate and hopeless. They paint their signs with poor skills and offer their goods with low prices, but they still fail to attract any customers. They also dream of having a better life in a beautiful mountain scene, but they are stuck in their miserable reality. 😢

Therefore, the tone of the extract is sarcastic and critical. It reflects the poet’s attitude towards the roadside stand and the traffic as being incompatible and indifferent to each other. He shows his sympathy for the roadside stand and his disdain for the traffic. 😔
