Probably no poem of Frost's so well accommodates the wide emotive swings of self whichbe probed from early on in his career. In "Desert Places" we watch the speakergo to the brink in his projection; then be comes back to normality, withdraws from darkvision, and rests in the stability of a balanced ironic consciousness. As well as any poemof dark vision that he wrote, "Desert Places" gives evidence of Frost's abilityto achieve aesthetic detachment from certain sorts of destructive experience.

Perhaps the modernity of "Desert Places" is most clearly seen in itsacceptance of a universe without inherent prior meaning. There is, in the last stanza, anote almost of relief at the realization that one is not tied to a dead universe; that is,to a universe whose overarching principle is death and separateness. Rather he finds auniverse without overarching principles, without prior meaning—a universe which he,as a poet, can fill up and fill out with meaning from his own life. For Frost this insightand the prospect it affords represent a tremendous freedom. "They cannot scareme," seen in this light, is simply another way of saying "the universe cannotimpose upon me."

In "Desert Places," then, Frost is commenting on one of the most basicromantic assumptions about the universe—that it is essentially responsive to man,that are its vital force, its reason for being. . . . What Frost realizes at thebeginning of the last stanza is that nature's empty spaces are truly empty—not onlyof matter, but of meaning and that it is only meaning that can scare. The tune is not inthe tree, and the lesson of emptiness is not between stars.

"Desert Places" . . . vividly demonstrates the power of the imagination toinfluence the traveler's perception of the region he observes. "I have it inme," he says (l. 15) of the fear that arises from his bone-and spirit-chillingmeditation. As a result of his voyage toward the "blanker whiteness" (l. 11) ofhis imagination, he can barely continue that other journey across the countryside, atleast not in the spirit with which he began. His vision of loneliness will dominate anyfuture travel he undertakes, and we should recognize that this poem may represent afrightening extension of the imaginative journey implicit in "Stopping byWoods." If so, the two works testify to the poet's growing reluctance in the twentiesand thirties to launch off on the speculative, figmental explorations that a decade or twoearlier had animated such brilliant pieces as "Mending Wall," "AfterApple-Picking," and "The Wood-Pile."
