This paper offers an explanation of what is meant by Frost when he says he is acquainted with the night. Also discussed is the structure of the poem and the use of tercet rhymes and iambic pentameter. Finally, this paper interprets the meaning of the symbols used in the poem.

From the Paper:

"On one level "Acquainted With The Night" seems deceptively simple and straightforward: observations of a solitary, late night walk in a city. Frost's use of language almost lulls the reader; the language is colloquial and accessible. Even the word "acquaint" seems reserved in the context of what the poet is trying to say. However, this simple, everyday language belies the complexity of this and many of Frost's poems, according to Robert Diyanni in Modern American Poets Their Voices and Visions. . . .though his poems are accessible to the general reader, they are not simple nor are they necessarily easy to understand . . . Frost avoids obscure language, preferring instead the familiar word and the idiomatic phrase."
