Ananlysis of "The Road Not Taken"

INFERENCE BASED ON EVIDENCE

Copy evidence from poem.

 

The road symbolises our path through life 

 

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller,”

In life we have choices and this is symbolic of the two roads, and you can only ever take one path in life.

Individuality is better

“The road not travelled” is better

 

“I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

 

 

He took the road less travelled, which means he took the less common path. And he found this path more of a benefit

 

In life making decisions is difficult

 

“, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could”

He didn’t conform to be like everyone else, and the decision was made with great difficulty

 

 

You cannot see into the future

 

“And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;”

He didn’t know were each road would take him, but the road less taken has a better claim.

You cannot change our experiences in life or how they affect us 

“Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.”

As this is a decision in life he couldn’t unmake his decision to take the path less taken. So he could never take the other path.


The Poem


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

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 travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.
