Example text

Often helps you draw further conclusions. For example, in the paper on “Dust of Snow,” you might speculate or explain how the speaker already knew that his self-pitying unhappiness was undesirable for his own emotional and mental health. Scholars often discuss this poem in terms of its meter and structure, and your conclusion could discuss the way the line breaks and word choices contribute to our understanding of the poem’s message. Another method for successfully concluding an essay is to speculate on other directions in which to take your topic by tying it into larger issues.

For example: According to George Monteiro, “Frost must derive more from mowing than just hay” (Renaissance 116), Frost’s later poetry demonstrates a “turn away from the more purely subjective lyrics and narrative poems of his first five volumes” (“Politics” 225). Similarly, and just as important, if you summarize or paraphrase the particular ideas of your source, you must provide documentation: Robert Frost’s early career consisted primarily of lyric poetry; later, sensing that he needed to make a more direct contribution to public life, Frost began writing more overtly political poems (Monteiro, “Politics” 225).

That simplicity puts him in poor critical standing compared to more difficult poets like T. S. Eliot and Wallace Stevens, highly acclaimed modernist poets who mastered the convoluted, fractured, dense aesthetic of modernism, but again if you were to investigate you might find that at their deepest levels these poets all share certain outlooks and concerns. Your efforts to place Frost in the modernist context could lead to engaging study, and you could work to establish Frost as either a hidden modernist or as someone who refused to participate in the modernist aesthetic.
