Example text

But yield who will to their separation, My object in living is to unite My avocation and my vocation As my two eyes make one in sight. (II. 57–68) What a peculiar and original story it is, once we hear “Resolution and Independence” as part of the context Frost evokes. Notice, above all, how completely the sentiment has been altered in the parting gesture, from a widening of sympathy brought on by the recognition of human endurance, to what looks like a rejection of sympathy and charity alike. And yet this cannot be the whole story, if only because we cannot make it tally with the swell and uplift of Frost’s concluding lines.

And only by one’s going slightly taut In the capriciousness of summer air Is of the slightest bondage made aware. The tent is a figure for poetic incarnation, and the fourteen lines of the poem, which uses the restrictions and compartmentalizations of the Shakespearean sonnet to achieve its single sentence, seem themselves a formal embodiment of the meaning they convey. This correspondence of form to content is reflected in the smallest details: the description of the central pole, for example, which is placed in the central quatrain; or the final couplet, which illustrates its own slight “bondage” to formal restraints by “going taut” as preannounced.

And where the two exist in twain Theirs was the better right—agreed. But yield who will to their separation, My object in living is to unite My avocation and my vocation As my two eyes make one in sight. (II. 57–68) What a peculiar and original story it is, once we hear “Resolution and Independence” as part of the context Frost evokes. Notice, above all, how completely the sentiment has been altered in the parting gesture, from a widening of sympathy brought on by the recognition of human endurance, to what looks like a rejection of sympathy and charity alike.
