I taught this poem to a class of 13 yr olds (usually quite restless!)...but
they seemed to have related to all that Frost says in this poem. There was
much scope here for relating the poem's "message" to the lives of the
children. I'm planning to do a lesson next time comparing this poem to
"Stopping by the Woods.." any suggestions anyone???

It is simple and unfortunate to follow a path taken by many others.
To choose the path less traveled is to explore & perhaps find oneself.
I belive the "Road Not Taken" is the one taken by most.

I have read some of the other comments, and I agree with alot of them but
all in all I think it's just a great poem with lots of feeling. I don't
think he regrets the road he took in the poem whether it applies to his
life or not. I think he was referring to life in general. Everyone has
tried to take a different road and wind up on the road that everyone else
took, but later on in life you wind up back where they started. I think
"The Road Not Taken" is a very inspiring poem.

and future will totally bright.

i haven't read all the comments that were made on the poem, but the few
that i read seem to have the same ideas and i think they might not be
entirely correct. i think frost is talking about regret, "I shall be
telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence"
he took the road less traveled but realized later in life that both roads
were the same, he might have wanted to take the other road but knew he
shouldn't. in the end he is the same person, he did not change even though
he took the road less traveled and he might regret that.

Most people seem to overlook that both roads were equally traveled. It
says so three times in the poem. There seems to be some irony in the
ending; was that road really the least traveled, or is the poet idealizing
his past?

Keep in mind that the last stanzas are not a summary of the entire poem,
but instead are only as important as what precedes them.

I graduated in 2004... I graduate with 435 students... 2 of us went into
the military.. I took the road less traveled by and hes right, it has made
all the difference.

For me, this poem is the BEST EVER that I've read. So simple yet so
touching. I am glad that the Malaysian Ministry of Education had chosen
this awesome poem as one of the poems in our compulsory literature study.
So glad that I have learnt it here in Malaysia.
