This paper reviews how Robert Frost in 'The Road Not Taken' offers two choices that are neither right nor wrong. It further discusses how Frost reveals his own sense of boredom in taking the well beaten path, but ultimately chooses to take a more independent and mysterious route in the road not taken. By forging ahead through the dense overgrowth of the forest on this particular path, Frost symbolically emulates his own desire to be free from commonality.
