CBSE Class 10 - English Literature - Poem - Fire and Ice (Summary and  Questions and Answers)



Summary:

‘Fire and Ice’ is a short poem by Robert Frost. In this poem, the poet says that people knit two croaking notions about the destruction of the world. Some say it will end in fire while others say it will end in ice. According to the poet  experience about human desire, he mentions that the ‘fire’ stands for desire, greed, avarice or lust. The more you try to satisfy them, the more they grow. There is no end to it. They spread rapidly like fire and engulf your whole life. One becomes selfish and sometimes cruel also. On the other hand, ‘ice’ according to the poet, stands for hatred, coldness and rigidity. One becomes insensitive and indifferent towards the feelings of others. The poet says that both fire and ice are growing with such a rapid speed that the world will soon perish either way, in fire or in ice. The poem, very artistically, underpins the philosophy that if we don’t control our emotions and let them rule us then they would bring the world to a catastrophic end.

The few steps of his cage,
On pads of velvet quiet,
In his quiet rage.

He hears the last voice at night,
The patrolling cars,
And stares with his brilliant eyes
At the brilliant stars.

~Leslie Norris

Questions based on a passage generally appear as a chronological relationship with the passage. Usually, the first question has the answer in the initial paragraphs and so on but if the answers are inferential then the complete answer might have to be gathered from various paragraphs and for this, one has to be thorough with the entire passage.


(SQP 2019)Read the following passage carefully:

1. Few guessed that this quiet, parentless girl growing up in New York City would one day become the First Lady of the United States. Even fewer thought she would become an author and lecturer and a woman much admired and loved by people throughout the world.
