Transcript of Poem Comparison
The age of the speaker seems different in each poem. In "The Road Less Traveled" it seems that it starts when he is a young adult and ends when he is older and looking back at his choice. In "The Open Road" it seems that he is an adult ready to walk the path wherever he chooses to go. " Understand that the right to choose your own path is a sacred privilege. Use it. Dwell it's possibility." Oprah Winfrey. "The Road Less Traveled" and
"The Open Road" are poems about
freedom and choices. Walt Whitman and Robert Frost both use the word road to symbolize their lives. In Oprah Winfrey's quote she talks about choosing your path is sacred, you should use it wisely. You are in charge of the decision that you make. Don't blame it on anyone else. In these two poems one word describes something totally different. But in some ways, these poems are alike. The Open Road vs.
We enjoy the idea of a simple choice changing your life forever. The symbolism for the road is very understandable and the poem focuses on the main points. We had no trouble paraphrasing this poem, whereas "The Open Road" we had trouble finding the main points. Both "The Road Less Traveled" and
"The Open Road" are amazing poems, but we
both prefer "The Road Less Traveled" by Robert Frost because we like the tone of reflecting back. We also like the word choice such as "trodden black." These words make you think more in depth.
