dc.description.abstractFrost's preoccupation with the dialog of the individual with universal process bears directly on his achievement as a dramatic poet. Therefore, this paper will proceed by ana1yze the dramatic implications and effects of Frost's worldview, the New England milieu, and his view of man, depending on the poetry alone for reaching its conclusions. The main section--with the philosophical and environmental setting as background--will explore human interaction in the poetic structure Frost gives it. Attempts will be made to answer such questions as: Why are the scenes and characters always reduced to the minimum required for dramatic action to take place? Why is it so easy for characters in a world of action to become mouthpieces for ideas? Why, even where action is central, is there little if any character development?en_US
