Robert Frost's "Mending Wall": Multimedia Lesson Plans - 0 views

  • An Alternative Interpretation

    Of Robert Frost's "Mending Wall"

    Poems can be interpreted in multiple ways. Some interpretations put the narrator on the side of the 'right' -- and possibly of love. Some readers believe the narrator is deliberately ambiguous about the issue of walls. Some suggest he enjoys the ritual of wall building even if the wall itself seems to have no purpose and that he wishes his neighbor would engage a bit more in debate and a bit more in whimsy.`

    What do you think of this alternative interpretation, which puts the taciturn neighbor clearly on the side of love?
  •  
    Includes various approaches to teaching the meaning of Frost's poem "Mending Wall"  for elementary, middle, and high school students.  I was especially impressed with the "Analysis of Mending Wall by Robert Frost" video by "xoaxdotnet," which would be perfect for high school students.
