Frost uses personification in the poem to help the reader relate to the object Personification the giving of a human quality to a non-human object. In the basest of terms, say you choose to go out the night before work and get really drunk. Well, this poem is one of my favourite. Each stanza is connected to the next. But you yourself can resurrect it from zombie-hood by reading it—not with imagination, even, but simply with accuracy. I have read that poem several times in my life.
This is for your administrator, not your kids. This must be my favorite poem ever. I remember reading this poem in class in high school. Because all roads are good. I was taught that your interpretation of the poem is correct, but not complete.
I doubt my work can be any good but I still try anyway. I just stumbled across you page. Besides portraying the stunning scenery, the poet also wanted to relate the transformation in nature to human life cycle. I had the choice of going to Europe or right into university. More than anything in the text of the poem, this title hints that the poem is about lost opportunities, and the complexities of choices, not just choosing the path that is fresh and new. That constant practice was the training ground every artist needs to become a professional. And now, Im off to fulfill my sudden craving for a lot of tropical fruit.
Being a scientist I am far from a fatalist. I am going through this phase where sometimes self doubt could be catastrophic to the extent of wondering why one took that step. The speaker chooses one, telling himself that he will take the other another day. In the left column list examples of hyperbole. To be charitable, you could call it the deliberate creation of a synecdoche for his life; to be less so, you could call it the deliberate creation of an exaggerated fable to make himself sound more important and brave than he was.
But the speaker made a choice, and took a path. But he took a path. If youre not obsessed about either of those, my best friend purchased this set and definitely loves it. Back then he actually thought that it'd be possible to follow the other road too Let's wait for Rosa Hola, a los dos! I might be wrong in interpreting your view but this is what i think so i wrote it. But I like your ending way better.
I love your approach to it. The one that you solely choose and not be affected by any factors at own. Sometimes I wonder if I would be better off if I just stayed in one place and focus on my career instead of traveling and living in 3 different continents, sorta like how you wonder if it would be a better decision to travel to Europe with your friend. So I am happy with all the good and the bad decisions that I made in the past and I look forward to making the best choice out of what I have today to create my future. I had never considered the possibility that this poem might have more than one possible interpretation! Robert Frost just mused on the many crossroads we encounter during life and where our choices lead us. And he admits that someday in the future he will recreate the scene with a slight twist: He will claim that he took the less-traveled road.
I kept expecting something better in one path or the other but found it full of incomparable things. This is a brilliant interpretation!! This is the dilemma of poetry. Most the humans usually do not realize half of what was planned. Because of a girl I liked as a kid, I started learning Karate. It tells me rise above the wave, flow in different direction, anyone can travel with the wave.
And the beauty of poetry is that everyone can interpret it differently, which is what makes the comments so interesting to read. And I believe I have grown as a person doing my own thing. And my life has been just a marvelous adventure. Seconds before peppering the class with heavy duty 24-gauge staples, I had an idea: maybe I should come up with a list of poems by Robert Frost with Robert Frost teaching activities instead. There is also the philosophical question that if everyone followed the road less travelled does it become more travelled? We can only take one road, and we always take what we can get from them. This is the way I see it. The final three lines are a good metaphor for life but there are reasons the road is less travelled by.
I have been your follower always…since first of your days…I have also seen your readers finding strength and hope, for me it was today. Since one choice leads to the next and the past can not be undone and relived. Perhaps that is why Frost calls for asking such questions as soon as possible. This is a poem about stasis. Be it the other person, other country or other job. Thanks Gavin, for all of the inspiration. I see in this different path a possibility to integration, synthesis, creativity, diplomacy.
Not the most winning interpretation, but it fits. This promotes self discipline as a tool for securing a happier disposition. He refers to events as they occurred the day he found himself at the crossroad and at that time he thought it was possible for him to return there because he kept it in his mind but he didn't think he would want to or it would be right to do so because there were many untraveled roads ahead. Frost uses nature to express this, which is a characteristic of romanticism. Unless I could have won the lottery or something! That is the deciding criteria. One of the attractions of the poem is its archetypal dilemma, one that we instantly recognize because each of us encounters it innumerable times, both literally and figuratively.
