Decisions Decisions In The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost and Barn Burning by William Faulkner the characters struggle with an inner conflict of making the correct decision Frosts character has to decide whether he should be a leader and take a path that was less traveled by or be a follower and take the path everyone has taken Faulkners character Sarty has to decide whether he should do the right thing and tell the truth about his crooked criminal father or be loyal to his family and hide the truth Both of these writings relate to each other because both characters are willing to take the risks and deal with the consequences after they make their decision They both know that once they have made their decision there will be no turning back In The Road Not Taken the character sees two paths one that seems to be traveled by more than the other which is grassy and looks as if it is rarely used The character has to decide which path to take Though it may seem like an easy decision the character struggles with the idea of being a leader or a follower Two roads diverged in a yellow wood and sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler Frost 91 He takes the path as the journey of life and he knows that he may never come back to this point again Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back Frost 91 The character knows that the path he decides to take will foreshadow his own personality for the rest of his life therefore he takes the road less traveled by He states I took the one less traveled by And that has made all the difference Frost 91 The character has molded himself to be more independent and stronger and he is happy with that outcome In Barn Burning
