North of Boston is Frost?s second volume of poetry that remarks Frost career as a poet. It has been widely praised by both American and English critics. However, they also give their critics and comments; and many try to observe deeper into the poems in it. W. G. O?Donnell, one of the critics, said that North of Boston reveals the theme of alienation, of man?s isolation from his fellow man. This is quite a surprise for North of Boston that has the power to bring individuals together, contains the theme of alienation. Using literary approach and library research the writer finds that "Mending Wall", "Home Burial", "The Black Cottage", and "A Servant to Servants", which are the major poems in North of Boston, reveal the theme of alienation. The theme of alienation appears from the diction and setting that Frost used in his poems. In addition, two types of alienation, which are social alienation and self-alienation, are found in the four poems.
