The Road Not Taken Week5
Robert frost is one of the best poets of all times, a scholar in the field and an inspiration to his readers. His works have been used to educate, to motivate and to set the ceiling of achievement in the best way known around the globe. This is a paper on his two significant poems; stopping by the woods on a snowy evening. This is a poem that shows a traveler’s journey, the journey is halted by the falling of snow once the traveler reaches the woods. The traveler is conscious of the woods owner and would not wish to disappoint him “His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here” his stopping at the precise point is strange and even the horse notices and makes a sound “He gives his harness bells a shake, To ask if there is some mistake.” He is conflicted with the idea of leaving, while the curiosity of watching the snow falling intrigues him, but obviously, he knows, he has a long way ahead.
In the road not taken, the speaker describes his journey in the unforged path, the strangeness of the path and how clean and weird at the same tie the road seemed. However, he took it anyway and that made the whole difference in his life. At some point, he will tell his story, with a relief “I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence:” in this poem, the speaker conflicts with the idea of a new path, the one not taken, but he has the resolve that all will be okay eventually “And that has made all the difference.”
In conclusion, it is vital to mention that both speakers have an end in mind, the first poem shows how Frost knows he has o travel longer and reach his destination, where he will find the rest he needs. In the second poem, he knows the difference will be brought by the uniqueness of the path forged, and in the end, he will be relieved and will get to tell his story with a sigh.
