Savages of the Road - ... Strangers have no reputations, and less guilt” (Kinosian 550). Forni makes a good point. This woman did not know me personally and we will probably never see each other again, so why not act a little crazy.

An Analysis of Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken - An Analysis of Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken In "The Road Not Taken," by Robert Frost, many questions arose about the meaning of the poem.
