This paper discusses the Robert Frost poem "The Road Not Taken." The paper is a discussion of the symbolism and imagery in Frost's evocative poem. The author explains that the road portrays life and the choices in life are the road diverging in the poem.

From the Paper:

"In Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Not Taken," he used symbolism and beautiful imagery to vividly portray life's choices by simply describing a road in a wood. And he described the point where the single road forked and now a choice had to be made, as the road became two new paths, each going in a different direction. The choices in the poem were clear. Frost displayed simply that there were 3 choices, to select one path or the other to continue forward, or to turn and go back down the road in the opposite direction. As a reader I was drawn into the poem and it made me reflect on life. In life there are many choices, and many different ways to go about making them, but also in life there is no going back, no revisiting the past except in our memories, whether they be joyful or regretful, at the choices we have made and the road we have chosen to travel in life."
