Grade 8 Reading Lesson 20 Poetry – Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Grade 8 Reading Lesson 20 Poetry - Stopping By Woods On A Snowy EveningGenre/Topic:

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is a poem to be marveled at and taken for granted. Robert Frost claimed that he wrote it in a single nighttime sitting; it just came to him.

Jabberwocky beautifully skates the thin edge of being understood and being nonsense. But such glorious nonsense! Read it yourself, and see if you can make a head or tail out of it. Also read the ‘Draggerwocky’ that follows.
