Analysis on “Fire and Ice”
You can find an alternate rhyme between fire, desire, twice, ice, suffice, hate, great. The poem is organised in one stanza of 9 lines. At the beginning there’s an anaphore with some say, that introduces the idea of common people choosing between fire and ice but after the poet writes that it doesn’t matter because wheter with fire and ice the planet will die and there’s no difference betweem burning and freezing because the result is the same. The fire represents the aggressive behaviour and the ice the behaviour without feeling. But both represent the lack of communication. Fire represents diying by passion and ice represents the end whitout passion.
