The Road Not Taken

ÐŽoThe Road Not TakenÐŽ± by Robert Frost is s poem of description as he was revealing what he experienced when he had to make a decision. The physical journey Robert Frost described in his poem was there were two different ways for him to choose where they would both end to the same place.

The two different roads gave two totally different impressions to the author, while he was deciding and examining them,

ÐŽoLong I stood,

And looked down one as far as I could,

To where it bend in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;ÐŽ±

This isnЎЇt just telling us about the roads. It is said that the entire people take one of them, and it seems to be the one end with success, because people who take that road, would obviously know where they are ending, and they know what they are aiming for. As the author had a deep look at the other one, which seems to be full of bushes and hasnЎЇt been stepped by a lot people, he actually said that it seems to be just as good as the other one, and perhaps even better than the other one. That shows Robert Frost maybe an adventurous person to think that the road seems to be empty and scary is the better one.

This mentally evaluating process is actually the theme of the poem and we would also see this happening again in the next few lines.

ÐŽoThough 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.ÐŽ±

Now the author is trying to persuade himself with his presumption that they would end the same and maybe both of them is traveled by the same amount of people. However, he contradicted himself in the next line by saying that the leaves on the empty road havenЎЇt been stepped by anybody yet. Again this is a spiritual and mental process behind the scene of physical journey.
