What is a stanza?
A stanza is a group of lines in a poem, which would be similar to a paragraph in a regular text. For this question, we must analyze the stanzas of the poem "A Narrow Fellow in the Grass.” The last stanza contributes to the structure of the poem by shifting the emotional tone from neutrality to fear. In the preceding stanzas, the speaker presents a factual and somewhat detached depiction of the snake's presence and behavior.
However, the final stanza abruptly changes the emotional atmosphere. The phrase "And Zero at the Bone" conveys an intense and chilling fear that contrasts with the previous neutral tone. This shift in tone in the last stanza serves to underscore the unsettling impact the snake's presence has on the speaker. It adds a layer of complexity and emotional depth to the poem's portrayal of nature and the speaker's response to it.
