When small incidents serve to represent bigger pictures, what is that called? Would it be a metaphor? Symbol? Analogy? or what? I am referring to Robert Frost's poems. He takes everyday incidents and make them represent life as a whole. Is that a metaphor?

    So what do you think Good Fences represents? Is it more than a fence between neighbors. Could it be symbolic of relationships, and how we separate them? What is a metaphor?
