High School Essay Contest: Win an iPad

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Shmoop announces their first essay contest for high school students.  In 500 or fewer words answer this question :

In Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” …

Examine the relationship between the speaker in the poem and his environment, which includes not only the woods themselves but his horse, the owner of the woods, and the community. Include in your discussion an examination of Frost’s use of language and imagery, focusing on how these contribute to the meaning of the poem and help him to achieve his purpose. Be sure to support your ideas with evidence from the poem.
