ROBERT FROST’S FIRE AND ICE POEM WITH THOR NEWS WEIRD WEATHER DATE
“Fire and Ice”
by Robert Frost
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favour fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
The poem itself does not require a large amount of explanation as to meaning of words or phrases, due to Frost’s concentration on making the poem readable and understandable by all.
Despite the simplicity of the language use, the poem carries with it very deep themed ideas. Essentially,
Frost is providing commentary upon two of the darkest traits of humanity: the capacity to hate, and the capacity to be consumed by lust.
Of the two, he attributes the greater of two evils to desire, saying
“From what I’ve tasted of desire / I hold with those who favour fire.”
In giving desire the foremost position in regards to the destruction of the world,
Frost is providing a powerful statement on the subject of greed and jealousy, saying that above all else, even hatred, this is the trait of humanity that is most likely to lead to its demise.
To Frost, desire represents the greatest problem that the world faces.
“Fire” is conflict between people and people.
They become so passionate and driven by their beliefs that they find it difficult to agree.
The passion oozes and explodes.
Desire causes conflict because passionate people become so influenced by their beliefs that they cannot rationalize with others.
