The Road Not Taken is a poem that has countless people questioning the
meaning behind the words. Poems are not met to be diesected word for word.
The reader must decide for his/her own meaning.
This poem was written about Edward Thomas, who was a close friend of Robert
Frost. Robert wrote this poem because his friend would regret a road they
walk down. But this poem is a symbol for people to take their own road, to
be different, and not look back at their choices though life. I wish critcs
would leave this poem alone.

This poem was the greatest poem i read it made me think that the littlest
choices you make in life can impact you in many ways. And that making that
choice makes all the difference.

It think it is a really touching poem all about making choices in life and
not regretting them because sooner or later you will need to face the
consequences and there will be no turning back. have no regrets live life
to the full

It simply describes to us what we all have to go through. we make choices
every day and we cannot go back in time and change them.

I thought that Robert Frost's Poem: The Road not Taken was much like
Makenzie Call's Poem: Janetta and Me. Not many people have read this poem,
but it talks about to roads that Janetta took. It is a verry excellent and
well written poem. I advice anyone intrested in the great American
litterature to pick it up immediatly. I have read that poem countless
times while relaxing on the beaches of mexico and California. that reminds
me... One time while baby sitting by young sister, I was watching this one
T.V. show. There where these two people talking, and one of the characters
said, "No, that's not how you do it" It was the funniest thing I've ever
read.

Robert Frost was never a believer in the Budhist ways. Anyone on this
website who has not been enlightened imediatly go to the nearest Budhist
temple and Redeem yourself in the ways

I read this poem in 8th grade..but i didn't understand it as much as i
could now...beacause now i am doing a research paper on it...and it seems
much easier to understand now. The poem is one of my favourites which is
quite touching...
