This paper examines how Robert Frost's "Wind and Window Flower" dramatizes the conflicts between stability and change, between love and death and between subtle and dramatic strength. It looks at how by personifying the wind and the window flower, the poet transforms observations of the natural world into characters in a story.

From the Paper:

"The poem consists of seven stanzas of four lines each. Each line has either six or seven syllables, but there is no strict regularity of syllables per line. The poem has a definite and compelling rhythm that helps dramatize the central narrative: the story of the wind and the window flower. Just as a deft storyteller will captivate his or her audience with the rhythmic intonations of the voice, so too does the narrator of the poem captivate the audience through poetic rhythm. The first stanza of the poem differs from the rest in both meaning and in rhythm, as in this stanza the narrator addresses the audience directly as an introduction to the tale."
