Analyzing 20 th Century Poetry 5.05 English 3 – Ms DeBellis By Zachary Scot

Mending Wall by Robert Frost This poem, “Mending Wall”, was Frost’s thoughtful way to show how one man was a decent neighbor. The poem was composed in the pre-WW1 era when Frost resided in England with his family. Napoleon Guay was the neighbor that had inspired Robert Frost to write. “Good fences make great neighbors” was something that Guay would repeat whenever he would do his routine work on the wall between their lands. Within many parts of the poem, Frost shows how free and limiting our existence is in our areas, by saying how “Good fences” is an idiom for the thought of having and showing control over your area.
