Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding A Close Read of The Horned Toad Prince - Section 4: Closure


In discussing the quote by Robert Frost, many scholars said they thought it meant that he do whatever he had promised to do before he would rest.

When scholars shared what they wrote about the prince, many of them said he went back home and fell in love with a princess and lived happily ever after.  A lesson they said they think he learned was never to offend anyone because you never know what they can do to you.
