mending wall

What should I focus on when I read "Mending Wall?"

Rhythm!It is a non-rhyming poem in iambic pentameter so it is BLANK VERSE. Remember, it reads like a heart beating:STRESSED-unstressed-STRESSED- unstressed

Theme!OK, so this poem is clearly about a wall. It is a real, physical wall--but it also a metaphor. Hint: think about the relationship between the neighbors.


Modernist in theme but not structure!

What does "mending mean?"

Other ideas:

How is this poem different/similar from "Another Brick in the Wall" and "Eleanor Rigby?"
