How does Robert Frost use imagery and symbolism to contrast the lives of the rural poor and the urban rich in the poem A Roadside Stand? Give examples from the text to support your answer.

Answer as written by the student:

Robert Frost uses imagery and symbolism to contrast the lives of the rural poor and the urban rich in the poem A Roadside Stand. Some examples from the text are:

  • Imagery: Frost uses words and phrases that create vivid pictures of the roadside stand, the countryside, and the city traffic. For example, he writes “The little old house was out with a little new shed / In front at the edge of the road where the traffic sped” (lines 1-2), showing the contrast between the old and the new, and the small and the fast. He also writes “The polished traffic passed with a mind ahead, / Or if ever aside a moment, then out of sorts / At having the landscape marred with the artless paint / Of signs that with N turned wrong and S turned wrong” (lines 7-10), showing the noise and speed of the cars, and their displeasure at seeing the poorly painted signs.
  • Symbolism: Frost uses objects and actions that represent the different aspects of the rural poor and the urban rich. For example, he uses the roadside stand as a symbol of the poor people’s desire for money and city life. He also uses the city traffic as a symbol of the rich people’s indifference and ignorance towards the poor people. He also uses the signs with N and S turned wrong as a symbol of the poor people’s lack of education and direction.

Step-by-step explanation of the answer:

  • The answer begins with an introduction that states the main idea of the question: how Robert Frost uses imagery and symbolism to contrast the lives of the rural poor and the urban rich in the poem A Roadside Stand.
  • The answer then provides two lists, one for imagery and one for symbolism , using bullet points for clarity and skimmability.
  • The answer also provides quotes from the poem to illustrate each point in the lists, using numerical indices.
