Summary of ‘Out, Out’ by Robert Frost

Out, Out’ by Robert Frost

The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard 1

And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood,

Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.

And from there those that lifted eyes could count

Five mountain ranges one behind the other

Under the sunset far into Vermont.

And the saw snarled and rattled, snarled and rattled,

As it ran light, or had to bear a load…………..

Summary: The poem depicts the social realities of Robert Frost’s time. At first we see that the saw is a machine making animal noises ‘snarling’ and ‘rattling’. The first few lines narrate the setting of the poem. When the wind blows, the dust is a sweet scented stuff. If a person were to look around the scene, he would encounter the beauty of Vermont and the five mountains. The saw contains running and making sound. (Collected from Anupam Publication)
