Transcript of The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost

The Road Not Taken
'Reading a book changes what you know; reading poetry
changes

who

you

are
.

Books tell about feeling; poetry
recreates feeling in you
.'
- Robert Harris
Poetry
Complexity
Gen
Y
Poetry = Boring & Confusing
Uninspiring & a waste of time!
Do you agree?
But are
YOU
missing the
REAL POINT
of what poetry
is trying to tell us?
Underlying Metaphor
Fancy Words

YOU
Robert Frost
Path 1
Path 2
Deceptive & Contradicting
Straight Forward
The Road Not Taken
GPS
YOU ARE HERE
"And sorry I could not travel both."
eget
Inevitable in Life
TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES
Deliberate Decision
Unconscious
&
Impulsive Choice
"Long I stood and looked down on as far as I could"
FUTURE
Future Choices
Inability to predict future
Craves
SECURITY
YOU
and
ME
LIKE
Doing, Choosing, Saying & Acting
the
'CORRECT WAY'
OP
'Because it was grassy and wanted wear.'
Risky?
Adventurous?
Safe?
Robert = Obliged
Both Paths Had Equally Fulfilling Results
Poetry
tells us we
need
to take
our own paths
YOU DON'T HAVE TO CONFORM
You are independent
Make your own choices
Do not strive for acceptance
Out of the
5000
decisions
A DAY
We are at a fork in our life's road
Past
Future
Present
Make a Decision
Repeat Proformance
CAN NOT
Regret Decision
'Way leads on to way'
Human Condition =
making the hard choices
unknown's of life
and the paths we choose
Coming to terms with the
Heave a
SIGH
Sad Sigh?
or
Relief Sigh?
Poetry encompasses life experiences
that relate to
YOU
OR
Poetry is:
Ridiculous
Complex
Uninspiring
Like Justin Bieber
Why do we spend
5
terms of English in high school exclusively on poetry?
5
So Now, What are
YOUR
Roads?
or
or
INDEPENDENCE
Choice
Somewhere New
to appreciate this
FREEDOM
we can't spend our
WHOLE LIFE
thinking we could have taken the
because that is simply the
WAY OF LIFE
OTHER PATH
THE HUM N CONDITION
AND FOR EVERY ROAD TAKEN THERE IS ALWAYS
A ROAD NOT TAKEN
