Acquainted with the Night Summary & Analysis
by Robert Frost

"Acquainted with the Night" is poem written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Robert Frost and first published in 1927. One of Frost's most celebrated poems, "Acquainted with the Night" is an exploration of isolation, sorrow, and despair—emotions that feel as inescapable as the night itself. These emotions, Frost suggests, are not unique to the speaker of his poem, but rather a universal part of the human experience. the poem is not a traditional Italian or English sonnet.
