“After Apple-picking” By Robert Frost Review

This poem focuses on someone who’s exhausted after a long day’s work in an apple orchard. Drifting between wakefulness and sleep, the poem’s speaker replays the day’s events while feeling anxious about all the apples left unpicked.

So this one in my opinion was better than the last poem we talked about written by Robert Frost but still I had hard time connecting with this story which again leads to low rating. 

This poem is tricky because you sort of can’t put it in ant specified category. But it’s fun when poems and books are tricky at least in my opinion.

The writing style for the most part was okay but as someone who have read multiple poems by Robert Frost I know that he can do better than this. But still I had fun reading this poem.

As I said above somewhere this poem didn’t speak to me, but still it is worth the read and it will won’t take you longer than 3 minutes to read it.

This poem needs to get some extra points for the symbolism in it. The symbolism in this poem is about the fallen apples being turned into apple cider.

Some of you may find this poem boring because there isn’t a lots of action in it and there isn’t a lots of things happening in this one. But some of you may enjoy it a lot.

I give this poem 2 / 5
