Question

"The Death of the Hired Man" (Passage Description)*

"The Death of the Hired Man" is a narrative poem by Robert Frost. Primarily composed of a dialogue between Mary and her husband, Warren, the poem recounts the return of Silas, the hired man of the title, to their farm where he has worked intermittently over the years. In the course of their conversation, the reader learns about Silas' erratic work habits, his difficult familial relations, and his sense of the farm as home. The conversation revolves on Mary's and Warren's different perspectives of Silas' return. While Mary feels compassion for Silas, Warren still resents Silas for leaving during a busy haying season. Mary assures her husband that Silas won't leave him again for he has come home to die. After some discussion on the meaning of the word "home," Warren relents and goes into the house to speak to Silas. When he quickly returns, Mary questions him and Warren replies with a single word-"dead."
