The Road Not Taken - Poem by Robert Frost

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 traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

    I did some research. See Frost: A Literary Life Reconsidered by Pritchard. Even though Pritchard confirms this poem to be about Frost's friend Edward Thomas, it nevertheless was written as a jest at Thomas and also seems to confirm my general ideas about Frost's thinking. This poem does not advise you to take the path others do not take because there's something noble in choosing to do so. It's way, way deeper and more complicated than that, which, in my mind is what makes Frost such a great poet and thinker. Do check out Pritchard. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    CD Sinex, in response to my comment that I see this as Frost facing mortality, very astutely pointed out that Frost penned this poem sometime in his mid-40's, and I thank him for his research/knowledge, and propose that, if you blend CD's point and my point, you might come up with the notion that The Road Not Taken is a product of Frost's mid-life crisis, and as I think about it, it might very well be. Whatever it is, I find thinking about it to be great brain exercise and, at 74, I need all I can get! Thanks CD and everyone else! I like reading your thoughts. (Report) Reply
