. For Frost, what do fire and ice stand for? Here are some ideas
greed avarice cruelty lust conflict fury intolerance rigidly insensitivity coldness indifference hatred.
In the poem ‘Fire and Ice’, Robert Frost has expressed his views saying that the world would either end in fire or in ice as humans have demolished the planet in an attempt to satisfy their needs and wants.
The words fire and ice are compared with self-destructing human emotions; hatred and desire respectively.
According to the poet, fire symbolizes human desires or passion and ice symbolizes hatred.
Fire stands for human desires or passion and ice stands for hatred.
The earth has started being intolerant of the insensitive people and will soon end in either fire or ice.
