Robert Frost When I was in English 251 my professor told us that Frosts poem The Road Not Taken was frequently misunderstood The only foreknowledge of the poem that I had was that one of my companions on my mission loved it and he would recite it quite often Then in class we had the opportunity to memorize a Frost poem So I chose The Road Not Taken I found it very interesting to hear the mistake that Olivia made in class when she said that it was called the Road Less Traveled It was then pointed out that that was a common mistake I did not believe that until I heard two others call it The Road Less Traveled So I began to dig deeper into the title itself The poem is not about the road that is less traveled but about the one that the narrator did not take I always considered this poem to be a happy poem based on the reaction that my companion had to the poem and the interpretation that he gave me It inspired him to make decisions that werent with the crowd So it was very interesting to actually sit down memorize the poem and think about the meaning The poem is about the road not taken This makes me think of all the decisions that I have made in life where I wondered afterwards What would it be like if I had made a different choice The word regret even comes to mind and that is strange because it has the opposite feeling of what my companion shared with me It seems to me that Robert Frost knew very well what he was writing but he hid it well in a weave of surface illusions which could give you an easily seem message but the truth lies deeper I suppose that is why we study him and his poems with a Professor of English and why
