The Rose Family by Robert Frost
Megan Lehrich and Carissa Leung

The Rose Family
The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.
First Line
The rose is a rose,

Diction
: symbolic
Tone
: calming
Meaning
: Beauty is beauty no matter what, the rose is beautiful for what it is, not its smell or texture or any other specific characteristics. Roses have several different colors and each color represents something, red - love, energy; white - fresh, perfection; pink - best condition/degree, compassion; yellow - smart.




Fourth Line
That the apple's a rose,

Diction
: figurative
Tone
: confident
Meaning
: even though the apple doesn't look like a rose (different shape), just as beautiful as the rose, the red quality defines it. The apple's red color represents love and energy. This line is an example of a metaphor.
Ninth Line
You, of course, are a rose -

Diction
: figurative
Tone
: positive, reassuring
Meaning
: “You” ( the reader) are beautiful no matter what anyone tells you. You may not look like
the person next to you who gets called pretty and beautiful, but you are because you’re beautiful inside and out. This line is an example of personification.

Overall Diction
Passionate and figurative
Overall Tone
Overall Meaning
Overall Theme
Passionate and proud
Outer beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, but inside we are all beautiful. Don't judge a book by its cover because it is what's inside that counts.
Fifth Line
And the pear is, and so's

Meaning:
Even though a pear doesn't look like a rose, it is still just as beautiful and should be seen in the same way as a rose is. A pear’s green color represents growth and individuality and yellow color represents its intelligence, which defines its inner beauty

Each color represents a quality trait (inner beauty) that women have.
Fashion may come and go, but true beauty will always be so.


Second Line
And was always a rose

Diction
: Symbolic
Tone
: Proud
Meaning
: The rose was always beautiful

What will next prove a rose

Diction

Tone
: Firm
Meaning
: Nobody can "prove" beauty.
Last Line
But were always a rose

Diction
: Passionate
Tone
: Fierce
Meaning
: Everything is beautiful, no matter what it looks like; shape and size don't define something or someone. Its whats inside that truly matters.
Third Line
But the theory now goes

Meaning: Logic and proof cannot be used to prove beauty.
