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

    I asked my 11th grade class to compare and contrass this poem with a poem written by Howard Simon called 'I Choose the Mountain' and got some really interesting responses. I have encouraged them to join Poem Hunter and post their responses. I really like this poem...10++++

    It's about expressing individuality. Taking the alternative route in life, and the joy it brings to those who seek more, those who are brave enough to go where the mass choose not to..

    This is a favourite among the poems I have suggested to my fourth year students. The reason is mainly that at their age, it can be said that they have come to the fork in the road of their lives. They have to choose among many alternatives in various fields: studies, social life, sentimental life, etc…. This poem inspired many of them to pause and think carefully before they select what would be their future. In previous years I have asked their colleagues to write their comments on: Dreams by Langston Hughes, this year and this message is for them: Please subscribe to this site: and write your comments on this poem or Mending Wall. Your comment will be considered as an assignment. Good luck! ! !

    A poem that's always fresh and thought-provoking. Makes me wonder everytime I read it. It gives a new feeling, one of optimism mixed with thought - a smiling thought.It is done in my fave poems.

    Its about the choices in life.I t may be related to choosing one's career. The poet tells us to take the new and different path (career) in life i.e. the road less traveled. Inspite of the risks and difficulties, he says it can make a 'difference' in life. However, peersonally, Frost wants to feel what would have happened if he chose the road most traveled. A very symbolic poem in a very well - written style.

    This is a classic.
    And it always will be.

    This is an excellent poem. One of my favorite. Whenever I have a choice to make I read this poem and I Choose the Mountain by Howard Simon. Love them both!

  • Isaac Kheri (9/9/2009 3:06:00 PM)

    I feel that life is all about choices and decisions so i can relate to what the poem is all about because eueryday every minute we stand @ that junction to decide. what to do what not to, who to be with, what to believe. knowing so wel that some of what we chose might bring us pain and misery but stil we have to for no decision is stil a decision. Nice poem love it.
