Transcript of The Road Not Taken TP-CASTT

By Robert Frost The Road Not Taken TP-CASTT By Allen Jorgenson and Josh Murello Title
The Road Not Taken Based on the title, I think this poem is about using roads as a metaphor for the choices we make in life. Paraphrase The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. Attitude The attitude changes from apprehension and anxiety at the beginning to happy and content at the end.
The way he says "And be one traveler, long I stood", it helps explain how anxious he is about making this choice, but when he says "I shall be telling this with a sigh" it shows how he has gotten over his anxiety. Shifts The shift occurs at the last paragraph when he says "I shall be telling this with a sigh" because up to that he is anxious and contemplative but after he makes the decision he becomes more sad like he wanted to travel both but hes glad that he only traveled one. Titles, again. After reading the poem I discovered that the title meant exactly what I thought it did. This title alludes to how the poem is about using roads as a metaphor for the choices we make in life. Theme The theme of the poem is that life has many forks in the roads and even though we feel uncomfortable about the decision we make at the time we will cherish them later. Connotation's Two roads split at a yellow forest,
I'm sorry i couldn't go on both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could

To where it turned and was overgrown
Then I took the other one, which was the same,
And it probably was better
Because it was grassy and wanted to be traveled on
Though the people who traveled here
Had used them about the same

And both that morning equally lay
I chose the path less traveled
Oh, i kept the other for another day!
I didn't know where it leads
I thought I may never come back

I'm telling this with a sigh
Somewhere in the future:
Two roads diverged in the woods, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I chose this text because it shows that the man in the story was happy with the choices he made in the end Real world Connections In life there are many choices and you should try to make the ones that will make you happy later on
