Born on 5 th December, , Rossetti started writing from an early age and today, she is regarded as a major Victorian poet. The poem is in a question-answer form. In the first stanza, the traveller who metaphorically represents man is questioning to the guide God that whether the road the path of life is winding up-hill all the way, which means is it filled with difficulties all the way till we reach the end of the journey — death? Also, whether the journey would take the whole day from morning till night?
Up-Hill By Christina Rossetti.
Question 1. Question 2. Does the road wind uphill all the way? Answer: Yes, the road winds uphill all the way. Question 3.
Appropriately enough. Rossetti is not interested in creating the kind of stylistic fireworks one might find. Every question raised in this poem has an immediate and simple answer. Clearly the poem was designed to reaffirm the faith of the faithful and to encourage faith in anyone who may have worries or doubts.

'Up-hill' - Imagery, symbolism and themes
Up-hill by Christina Rossetti
The poem is a metaphor for the journey of life, from birth to death. Similarly, the journey of life from birth to death is also very difficult and full of hardships. Just as one has to work hard to climb a hill, similarly in life one has to face problems and overcome them. Life is like a difficult uphill road and death is the final resting place where the traveller finds comfort after a difficult uphill journey of life.
The road - In Up-hill , the road symbolises the journey the speaker takes. However, that there is actually a road leading up the hill indicates that plenty of others have already taken the route that is being contemplated. The speaker will not have to carve or find her own path since it has already been revealed to her. Literally, the fact that it stands out in the darkness of the night indicates that the light that it sheds is powerful and will not be overpowered. Against the context of the Bible, the idea of a place of welcome and rest echoes two allusions:. Jesus comforts his disciple s with the promise:.
Over the course of a journey, the narrator asks her guide eight questions about the road ahead. The narrator asks if the roads are all up-hill and if the journey will take all day. The guide replies in the affirmative.
Poems that depict struggle are, generally speaking, poems that are universal. Everyone struggles in some capacity or the other, and this is hardly something that the average person needs a particular art form to tell them. Christina Rossetti was no stranger to struggle in life, and her poem, Up-hill , seems to call up her perspective on the concept. It imagines a conversation told in such a way that the reader can easily hear one side or the other coming out of their own thought process, and relating to it one way or the other. Up-hill is written in a common style for poetry; it consists of four verses with four lines each.
