The Road Not Taken


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    It will mean different things to different people based upon their bushel basket of life's experiences - and this meaning may change from year to year for that person. That is the beauty of art in that the creator can create a dialogue of meaning with each of us - each a little different. I celebrate no grand unified theory of what might be the right interpretation. (Report) Reply

    I like to believe that the poem is about making a difference. You might regretted the outcome, but you couldn't changed it. What you know is at least you have decide your own path, and make a difference. (Report) Reply

    Analysis of the Road Not Taken - It doesn't mean what you think it means.

    What i see first is the tittle the road NOT taken instead the one being taken, but still frost, through his NOT explains both of them.he is brave to say i marked the first for another day. Cant understand why in the last stanza he used the pessimistic term sigh.That might be personal. (Report) Reply

    its very wonderful. I think that important subject in a poem is it's language and not it's meaning and concept. I am an Iranian poet and likes this site. (Report) Reply

    this is an inspirational piece... this would be first time reading this poem, but not the first time hearing... love this poem bc its abt me-i always travel the road less taken bc thats just me-not wanting to be like everyone else and not wanting to take the same road you took, bc i know i will get a different result and betterit i follow (my) road, less travelled (Report) Reply
