The Road Not Taken In analyzing the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost it represents the classic choice of a moment and a lifetimepg 129 He relies much on the reflections of nature to convey his theme However this poem seems to be in essence very simple but opens the door for many interpretations In using a simple fork in a road Frost writes much to symbolize life and choices in which one will make Frost uses unique ability to see an ordinary everyday activity to portray such a theme By using such simple endeavors Frost reaches his audience on a more personal level However it is only ones past present and the attitude with which he or she looks upon the future that determines the shade of light in which the poem will be seen pg 621 There is never a straight path for one to follow on lifes journey By using two paths in which to choose from Frost leaves one to realize that everyone must travel and will reach a point of decision With stating And sorry I could not travel both Frost shows the point in which one will choose because there is only one path in which one may travel It is most difficult to make a decision on each appealing path because everyone will always seem to question what could I or could I not miss out on The fact he is sorry he is sorry he cannot travel or choose both paves the way for regret This will often be reflected upon by an individual in which saying what could have been leads one to dwelling over the choice of road in which they did not take In knowing that each one may be influenced in many directions Frost clearly implies And be one traveler long I stood No matter how each of us may be influenced
