Connotative and denotative word meanings. An example is the word sleep. Denotatively, sleep means to take rest or cease being awake. Connotative is Frost mean for sleep to be death and this changes the meaning of the lines. Symbols: woods are symbolic for life, snow indicates winter but can also mean that the speaker is elderly. “between the woods and frozen lake, the darkest evening of year” meaning that the speaker is at the beginning of the end of life. Overall, the meaning of poem is reminiscing on past memories when a person is in the older years on their life.
