How does the concept of Paradox contribute to the meaning of Robert Frost poem: Fire and Ice

Use Cleanth Brooks’s concept of paradox to support your thesis. What is the paradox in the poem you are
analyzing? How does that paradox contribute to the overall meaning of the poem? Why is it
important/helpful/necessary/beneficial to express this meaning through paradox? Or, to use Brooks’s language:
why is the paradox in the poem you’re looking at “the only way by which the poet could say what [he/or she]
says” (3)? Why would saying what the poet says without paradox “enfeeble and distort what is to be said” (4)?
Please don’t include any definition of paradox that come from a dictionary it should come from Brooks essay.
Example the Nasrullah Mambrol essay for example.
