I first heard the poem in my English class, while in the States as an
excange student in 1978. I'm sure I've sent part of it to my dad... but i
didn't have the letter nor remembered of it, and searched the web. I'll
problably put in on a frame, on my living room. It means a lot to me.

Wow... I read that poem and I was speachless. It was so amazing. For that
author to have that kind of talent must be the best feeling in to world. I
have read this poem over three hours ago and still. Speachless

whenever we need to make a decision, we will have confusion whether our
choice is true or not.

The poem is intensely philosophioc despite looking so basically simple.It
has the message of 'Indian Mysticism'- that choices made in life may be
guided by destiny- which determines one's life.we think that we choose the
way but all the time it is a divine force which leads us on.The road we
take is pre-destined.

This poem has helped me to relize that, my life depends on the decisions i
make not the ones that other people make for me or help me make. Sometimes
in life your friends and/or family wont always be their so you have to get
used to making decisions by yourself. He's not single he's dead.

How does he do all this? I'm doing a English project on Robert Frost and it
would be really good if someone can leave me some useful informations on
this guy's poems. Like some of his signiture sentence structures (if he has
one)and stuff. Thanx.

It does seem to me that Jordan is right. Frost repeatedly points out that
the two roads are equally well travelled by.
I was listening to Radio 4 yesterday and a commentator said that Frost was
pointing out our very conformist idea of all being "individualistic".
In fact there is only one truth..and a limited number of ways at arriving
at Truth. We like to boast that we have chosen our "own" way...but in fact
we have chosen from a limited number of options before us.Our lives are
actually far more circumscribed/planned for us than we like to believe.
Perhaps we can rejoice that actually we are not obliged to beat our ways
through the undergrowth. We can rejoice that we are not so individual as we
like to believe but are, in fact, part of a much larger plan.
