Everyone is a traveler, carefully choosing which roads to follow on the map of life. There is never a straight path that leaves one with but a single direction in which to head. Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken'; can be interpreted in many different ways. The shade of light in which the reader sees the poem depends upon her past, present, and the attitude with which she looks toward her future. In any case however, this poem clearly demonstrates Frost’s belief that it is the road that one chooses that makes him the man he is.
However, no one can really know which one is better. It reflects on people’s dilemmas in their everyday lives when they need to decide on all sorts of things. A person can assume what is best for him, but he will not know, unless he will take all the ways that are possible for him. Unfortunately, it is impossible as Frost describes in his poem. His belief that one way is better than the other shows his emotions about his life and his regrets, to some extent, to the road he had not taken.
Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken,” can be understood in various ways. The mood, attitude, and mindset of the reader predispose their thoughts towards the poem’s true meaning. The title of the Frost’s poem suggests that it is about decisions and obstacles in life and how people should handle them. Frost is voicing his opinion, saying that whatever path or decision making we make or do, one day, will be the key factor in your future tomorrow and thereafter. Almost every human being experiences life’s bumpy road journey and Frost indicates in his poem that there are never just one single path to take; instead it is like a complex maze.
However, each road "bent in the undergrowth" as where each road obviously different. It is unclear to him what the consequences would be if he chooses either road. Frost states "And sorry I could not travel both," that shows the point in which speaker will choose only one path in which to travel on. It is always difficult to make a decision, because it is impossible not to wonder what will be missed out. There is a strong sense of wonder before the choice is made because he knows that in one lifetime he cannot travel down on every road.
The simple reality that the narrator will never know what could have been or what he may have missed out on will leave him constantly wondering of the road not taken. The narrator made me think about society because every human in existence can relate to this poem – it sheds light on human thought and indecision, and the lost opportunities that go along with choices. Regardless of whether Frost followed the right road or if he regrets his decisions, we will never know if it was for the best. It is this mystery t
Life is a long road, where there is a lot of obstacles to go through and decisions to make, even if it is really hard sometimes because it plays with our future. Every choice we make, guides us to a different destiny and often leaves us in doubt, asking ourselves constantly questions starting with "what if?". Would not it be nice to always have signs to tell us which road to take when we face important decisions? Unfortunately, most of the time there is not, probably because we have to find out what reserves us our future. The poem "The Road Not Taken" written by Robert Frost, made me discover a new side of me.
This was expressed when he said “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” I found that throughout this poem there was much symbolism within it. Identifying that it was written in first person form showed that this poem relates to the author on a personal basis, and that it was probably written to symbolize his life. But when talking about people’s lives, you can conclude that people’s lives are generally and individually very diffe... ... middle of paper ... ...om, a split road. Never really knowing the correct road to take the person chooses one path or road after analyzing the other. He is sure and goes on from gut instincts and picks a path moving on with a strong will and a lot confidence, leaving the other road behind untouched.
The future of every individual relies solely on his/ her choices and the context in which they live in. Those two factors fluctuate in importance depending on the situation and the extent of time that situation is viewed in. A linear path is impossible as there are always unpredictable factors that will avert or even stop an individual from the continuing on the original course of action. Predestination, fate and density are nonexistent. There is no higher power forcing one’s self to take a certain route; God has not chosen a destination for anyone.
it s hard to wrap your mind around this but without nothingness there wouldn't be nothing as beings. One can not exist without the other. Jean later says “ because nothingness resides in man-and only in man- he can never be identified with himself” jean said this to show and explain that we as beings can never be content there's always changing ideologies,perspectives, interests, and etc, that we can never be satisfied we are always looking for something better. As beings we are separated from self by nothingness.as man we have nothingness with himself, that nothingness can separate us from present all the way to his past. Nothingness could be said
We come to the conclusion that “way” does really “lead on to way”, and usually there is no returning back. Though a path in life that may seem very similar to another always contains subtle differences that usually lead to different outcomes. Humans live in uncertainty making it difficult for an individual to be completely happy with the path they choose to take in life. Though an individual may gain many opportunities along the way, the fact is that individual will never know what could have been if he would of chose the other road and will never know what he may have missed in the journey of life, always leaving him wondering of “The Road Not Taken”.
