    Dear s18:

    Not having read your paper, I don't know if this is an adequate thesis statement. It seems a bit vague. Is the paper specifically about Frost and his inspiration for 'Stopping by Woods..." or is it, as you say, about poems such as "Stopping by Woods..."
    There is a big difference.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
