The Hill Wife
Added by: gabriela
To me the poem reads like an estranged couple; she being too lonely; siezed the opportunity once in the woods and escaped, for good. To another reader in class, it looks like she's passed away; the writer looks back in a simple, metaphorical way. Which one is it?

We learn about the consolations of form in Frost's "The Hill Wife". The poem helps locate us in our own losses, our own loneliness. Frost probably would have called it getting found and taken back. In the right hands, strict form offers lovely comforts.
