Abbott 3the “sunset far into Vermont” (6), before returning to the aggressive imagery he used prior. The effect of this juxtaposition is it gives the reader a 180 in what they are reading as the tone shifts so suddenly, which forces the reader to compare the two descriptions. The purpose of this is so that the beautiful imagery emphasizes the degree to which the buzz saw is ugly making it that much more aggressive and gruesome right from the start of the poem. This contributes to the overall message of the poem as the buzz saw play a vital role within the story and this juxtaposition sets up its character to be an ugly, feared one. Juxtaposition is effective in Frost’s poem because it puts a buzz saw next to a sunset, emphasizing how loathsome the saw would be in the story.In conclusion, this story of a boy who has his hand chopped off by a saw and eventually bleeds out is made more effective by Frost’s use of caesurae, enjambments, and juxtaposition. These literary concepts made his poetry more effective by impacting the meter and rhythm, as well as using comparisons and dramatic stops. Frost’s poem Out, Outis an effective poem due to is excellent use of literary devices.
