It can be seen as a moderately conservative, yet activist, response to the challenges of the Depression (SSA, 2014)....   [tags: social security act,ponzi scheme,social insurance]

However, it could be argued that the ending rhyme being the second rhyme suggests that the narrator is unwilling to fully let go of the less dominant choice, it is this human reluctance that Frost manages to capture within his poem, ‘And sorry I could not Travel Both’ (2), showing that the narrator had hesitations about the future and th...   [tags: Poetry, Stanza, Narrative, Rhyme]
