    Exclamation three language techniques 'stopping by woods on a snowy evening' robert frost.

    urgent need help pleaseeeeeeee.

    need three techniques on this poem.


    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.
    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.
    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound's the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.
    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    Is this related to change or journeys as an aos?

    Otherwise:

    1) Sibilance (repetition of 's' and 'z' sounds) of the title "stopping by woods on a snowy evening" conveys peaceful connotations of this natural journey, as the speaker initiates his trek into the wilderness of his heart and external reality. (if it is change, the alliteration imparts metrical emphasis upon 'stopping' suggesting the transition one may gain as a result of natural experiences).

    2) The repetition of first person pronoun in "Whose woods these are I think I know" personalises the journeying experience, as the speaker reflects on their changed mental state.

    3) The monosyllabic emphasis (clause dominated by one syllable words) of "His house is in the village though" highlights the powerful convergence of natural and unnatural aspects of the landscape, as the poem undergoes its first major movement to communicate how balanced perspectives may arise through our exposure to extrinsic and intrinsic worlds. (if it is change, focus on how the polysyllabic 'village' is symbolic of change in the natural scenery).

    Hope that helps. Those techniques were derived entirely from the first three lines, and it really shows how much you can take from just a single text. As long as you keep your analysis imaginative, you should have no problem for next time.

    edit: didn't realise you were an 08 student, of course it would be journeys, best wishes with your work then.
