Politics of a Wall in Robert Frost's "Mending Wall"
In this detailed lesson plan, students go beyond an analysis of Frost's poem and consider the larger social and political implications of walls. They analyze the perspective of the speaker and evaluate the logic that Frost's speaker uses to appeal to the neighbor.
