This paper examines the imagery of Robert Frost in four of his poems," A Prayer in the Spring", "In Hardwood Groves", "Hyla Brook", and "A Brook in the City", explaining how Frost uses playfulness and anthropomorphism in his imagery.

From the Paper:

"Robert Frost's use of imagery in his poems is skillful and meaningful. The imagery is characterized by two salient attributes-playfulness and anthropomorphism. His images are, as Martin Bidney calls them, secretive-playful epiphanies that sometimes reflect solitude, other times companionship and usually, the ambivalent imagination. At the same time, Frost's images are anthropomorphic, ascribing human traits to trees, leaves and other elements of nature in a manner that unites the non-human entities of nature with their human counterparts."
