Road Not Taken, The Analysis

Author: Poetry of Robert Lee Frost Type: Poetry Views: 1675

Sponsored Links

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that, the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

the most confusing part has got to be the lines which contradict each other about if there was a difference in the wear and tear in both roads. i think its left to your interpretation. its a really open ended poem-take what you want from it.

This describes his personnel life as his sudden movement to england from his own land. But this gives an advice to us about choosing a path in our personnel life.He chose the path which is used less.He did that to experience the problems which he is going to face in his life,he thought different from others.

This is one of the most ironic poems in american poetry. He is saying that hes going to make up a story that he took the road less travelled when hes old.. in reality he didnt take the road less travelled, and nobody ever does, they just make it like they do.

Frost is trying to make a decision of which road to take but wishes to travel both, but with no time on his hands to do so. He is trying to teach to us that when you make one decision you will always have to lose something. Frost tells us that making decisions is something you must do in the journey of life.

I think the fork is symbol of uncertainty. It's like one is not able to make a decision. He is pondering which road to take..

.: Thanks<3 :.

I felt that all of the analysis were extremely helpful and made sense of a sometimes confusing but intellectual, Robert Frost. THsi poem is very amazing and if you read between the lines, you can depict many situations, and see a thematic connection between your lives and Roberts.
