Fire and Ice


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

    the world will end in fire,
    ..............................................
    the will is the free....

    Clever decisions,
    will not come in fire twice -
    like in the river will not come in twice..

    Great juxtaposition, humour, and everything in general.
    Frost, although your name suggests cold, you write with a warm heart (or icy) .

    i feel that this poem has a great message.
    it tells us of where our world is going when it comes to social relations. i feel that frost is highlighting that either there's going to be really big harsh open hate among people or jealousy that will end thew world when he talks about fire.
    and when talking about ice, he probably means something like cold war, or humans having cold hearts, not mixing with others of their society and unaware of kith and kin.
    whats more, hes probably not talking about actual physical end of the world, but the end of good in here with the end of our social relations! (Report) Reply

    Such a simple poem that carries great elegance. Polar opposites have much more in common than thought. (Report) Reply

    What nobody EVER gets about this masterpiece is that it is completely and fully sarcastic. it is a tongue and cheek play on the idea of 'judgment day'. Yes Frost was a devout Christian, and had a conventional and structured writing style, however he in no was old-fashioned or unoriginal. (Report) Reply

    I remember reading this poem in middle school. Its excellent, though short. Some great conjecture here. I am from the town over from Lawrence, MA where Frost is from. But my favorite has always been Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.

    I agree with the notion that fire represents the means of punishment for all those nice elements that drive our ego. I believe the message here is that he agrees that we will all be punished for our sins as outlined by Dante's Inferno. Let us admit to the fact that society lacks a superego as a whole-we are all driven by our own desires. Frost also makes it clear that freezing to death would be I much better way to die- which I am in agreeance with. Death by hyporthermia in which your heart slowly stops beating is much more desirable that incineration! (Report) Reply

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
