Robert Frost has been considered as a great American poet chiefly because he has presented the scene of human dilemma. During his eighty eight years, Robert Frost became the most read and honoured American poet of the twentieth century. During his long poetic career Robert Frost composed poems and published them in the form of several volumes. Robert Frost's poetry can definitely be called the poetry of human beings. He reveals himself through his poems as a student of nature. His poems reveal the expression of human predicament- a human being in the grip of alienation, despair and disillusionment. Frost’s people suffer in the hands of nature. They have their personal problems. A human being in the poems of Robert Frost has to face unpleasant situations. His first volume of poems shows the maturity of Robert Frost's powers about the expression of human predicament. It expresses the tone of disappointment. In North of Boston, he tells the story of conflict. His third volume contains a wider variety of poems and deals with human difficulties. This volume represents Robert Frost's reflective mood. The poem “In the home stretch” is a story of a couple, moving in to an isolated farm. This paper focuses on the aspect that loneliness and fear of loneliness are always present in human heart. Man is alone, alienated and his alienation becomes the source of human predicament.
