"Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost
This poem represents the feeling of the nomadic soul of the time. Many people during the 20th century were struggling with issues that caused them to need to wander on long journeys. Sometimes they were journeys of self discovery, other times they were journeys made to keep promises. As Frost mentioned in the last stanza, these journeys were long and tiring.
"The woods are lovely, dark, and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep. "
"Fog" by Carl Sandburg
This simple, yet haunting poem, connects into the events of the 20th Century in many ways. One of the main ways that I can see would involve the fog representing the problems that many Americans faced during the times. Economic turmoil, the struggle for Civil Rights, and internal struggle amongst many other things can be represented by this fog. It sits upon "silent haunches" representing the haunting way in which your problems linger with you. However, the end of the poem shows that this fog eventually clears and moves on. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
