Abstract

The research aimed to discuss humanity as seen through metaphor in Robert Frost’s “Nothing Gold Can Stay”. The objective of the research to portray the metaphor dealing with humanity in Robert Frost’s “Nothing Gold Can Stay”. In analyzing a poem, the writer needed more concern with the sense devices in understanding poetry. The main theories that were used to analyze the data were the theory of figures of speech, that is, metaphor. Furthermore, the descriptive method was used to analyze the data, and the technique of collecting data was library research. There were two approaches used in the analysis. They were structural approach and formalist approach. In the poem entitled "Nothing Gold Can Stay", the speaker uses figurative language, like metaphor, to talk about nature. It means that what the speaker says about nature can be broadened to figuratively say something about humanity. The finding of the research was the most significant meaning could be taken away from "Nothing Gold Can Stay" is that, nothing gold can stay. The most beautiful things in life often had the least longevity. The poem used the examples of spring blooms, the Garden of Eden, and sunrise to get this point across, leaving the readers to think about all the things in life that was so wonderful and so transient. Whether it was the euphoria of winning a soccer game, or the youth of our minds and bodies, people experienced something wonderful that had faded away incredibly fast.
