PRESENTATION: Slide 1- The speaker expresses that the wall is unnecessary, physical separating him from his neighbor and therefore serving as a barrier to their communication and relationship. He asserts that “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,” suggesting that there is a nonspecific conscious force in nature that deliberately breaks down the stone wall, emphasizing his belief that the the wall is not only unnatural, but so is the act of mending it . Ironically, although the speaker seems to believe that the wall between him in his neighbor is unnecessary, he is the one who initiates the joint mending each spring. Slide 2- In lines 1-4, the speaker suggests there is some natural force tearing down the wall, introducing his argument that walls aren’t natural or even necessary. He refers to this natural force as “something” since is it unknown, demonstrating the speaker’s feelings of uncertainty and unclarity. In lines 5-11, he contrasts this natural destruction with the destruction created by hunters. Unlike the natural destruction, this destruction is easily explicable since it is human-caused and therefore can be understood by the speaker. In lines 12-24, the speaker portrays the activity of mending the wall as an “outdoor game” with a humorous tone. He then introduces a contrast between his neighbor and himself in lines 25-38 as he tries to convince his neighbor that there is no need for the wall.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
