Fire and Ice RCR By austin cooke

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice.

I think the tone of this poem is that Robert is indifferent if the world ends. I think this because of this textual evidence. "I think I know enough of hate, To say that for destruction ice Is also great and would suffice." What he is saying is that he wouldn't care if desire or hate would destroy the world.

I think the theme of the poem would be that fire symbolizes desire and ice symbolizes hate. With this info, the theme is that the world will end with either desire or hate, since that is the drive of most humans in the world. I believe this because of this textual evidence. "Some say the world will end in fire, some say ice."

Fire symbolizes desire and ice symbolizes hate. I think this because of this textual evidence: "From what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire." Another example could be "I think I know enough of hate, to say that destruction ice."
