In Robert Frost's poem, Stopping by Woods, the protagonist (main character) is the unnamed narrator, himself. He is traveling through the woods in a horse drawn sleigh during winter time. It is almost dark, but not quite. He pauses to contemplate the woods and to listen to the sound of the snow coming down. The protagonist seems weary, and cold, and almost seems to have lost, momentarily, the idea of what he's doing on the planet. Then, he comes to realize that he has things that he still wants to accomplish and is able to reconnect with life...and thus leaves the woods and heads for home.
