Creating new knowledge from renowned pieces of literature has always been challenging since they are researched with various individual perspectives by every passing second. Given the consideration of Robert Frost’s Home Burial, it is not an exaggeration to mention that it has also no exception with regards to the above claim. But still, it is quite clear that the poem could sail more longer as it has not been much viewed from the viewpoint that this paper addresses; a conflict between manliness and motherliness. These two have been a topic of academic debate in the history of literary studies in which each was separately taken into consideration within one piece of literature. For instance, this can be minutely examined in the poem of “Refugee Mother and Child” by Chinua Achebe for which motherliness has been the base. Home Burial is promising and appealing as both manliness and motherliness meet on one platform in which two seems to be contradictorily fighting each other.
