This paper discusses how in the Robert Frost poems, 'Two Tramps in Mud Time' and 'Putting in the Seed' language is used carefully to express the poet's views on work and the part it plays in his life. The paper looks at how Frost expresses a love for work using positive, emotive language and uses form and structure to represent life and how work fits into it.

From the Paper:

"The poem, 'Two Tramps' is made up of nine stanzas, quite long in comparison to 'Putting in the Seed'. This represents the long time he is taking to make his decision because his love for work is so great. It also shows how life is long and that if he were to give up his job life would go on. The rhyme structure of the poem is regular to represent the regularity of his life and the same routine he has - that his work gives him a break from this routine but also how his work is regular. He has become used to working and does not want to give it up because it would have such as big effect on his life."
