English Poem After Apple Picking (By Robert Frost) Summary & Introduction
fter Apple Picking (Robert Frost) Introduction
This is a sweet poem in which we find the narrator so tired of his daily routine-work that he is going to sleep. He is so fed up of his work that he is even ready to die. He tries to imagine what type of sleep is he going to have – and then leaves the answer on the imagination of the readers. Thus he blends the real and the fanciful in a strange manner in this poem.
After Apple Picking (Robert Frost) Summary
He is so overcome by sleep that he is unable to work even if he so desires. All familiar objects of nature are assuming unfamiliar shapes. He is unable to remove a thin sort of film that has come in his eyes and that resembles transparent glass or snowflake. He is so hazy that he is unable to distinguish between forms. He is going to sleep although he knows what kind of dream he will see. He thinks that he will see apples, very big apples, in his dream. May be it will be a a long sleep as that of a woodchuck (who remains dormant throughout the long winter months). Rather he is even ready for that if his sleep is going to be a sleep of (real) death as he is unable to do any more job!
