Transcript of The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

by Anthony Torrise Analyzing Robert Frost's:
The Road Not Taken THE END Robert Frost was born in March 26, 1874 in
San Francisco, California. He showed much
of his philosophies in his poems and was a
very highly respected poet of his generation.
He won several Pulitzer prizes for his poetry.
He lived to be 89 years old and died in Boston,
Massachusetts. Literary Devices In the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, there are no examples of alliteration, onomatopoeia, or personification, but there is a rhyming scheme that goes by: a,b,a,a,b; and the metaphor is a metaphor for choices in life and what people will choose in life whether or not they want tto take the easy way through life or make something out of it. Sound Devices The Road not taken is a narrative poem because it tells the story of how a man came to a decision on whether he wants to take the easy way through life which would not make his life so great or the hard way that would make his future better. It also 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 marked 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. The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost There is not really any rhythm in this poem, but there is rhyme such as: "Wood, stood, could, and both and undergrowth" which is located in the first stanza. Repetition consists of the words "and, two, and roads".End rhyme has the words: "Sigh, I, by" and "Hence and Difference". Slant rhyme is in every word in the end of every line in all of the stanzas. Each has the same vowel sound in them. A E I O U Imagery The imagery that can be pictured as two roads divided (two choices on how to live a life, one hard and one easy) and a person going down one that looks less used (using the hard choice that he knows would pay off in his future.)
