The road not taken involves a moral dilemma about choice in life as the road symbolise options. Discuss this statement.

Dear student,

The poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost is about the choices that one makes in life. It tells about a man who comes to a fork in the road he is travelling upon. He feels sorry that he cannot travel both paths as he must choose one. Frost uses this fork in the road to represent a point in the man’s life where he has to choose the direction he wishes to take in life. As he thinks about his decision, he looks down one path as far as he can see, trying to foresee what life will be like if he walks that path. He concludes that the trail that has been less travelled on would be more rewarding when he reaches the end of it.

the road not taken discusses about the choices given in life. in this the poet is in immence confusion about which road he should choose. he takes his time and thinks about both the choices and their pros and cons. then he ends up taking the road which was less travelled. but that does not mean poet was wrong or out of his mind. it simply depicts what a person capacity of thinking is and how he takes life as it comes
