Home Burial (1914) by Robert Frost is a powerfully emotional poem that as the title suggests explores the death of a marriage as the consequence of the death of a child. It reveals that discoveries can be confrontational and emotional. Frost utilises dialogue to portray the couples inability to communicate their grief.
