Some critics might say Frosts logic in The Road Not Taken is an unclear poem that allows the reader to think about choices in life.
The road is a symbol that represents the journey of life that has an end point. There will be times in life when a decision has to be made. Frost had to make a choice between being a teacher and a poet. He also realized the difference was between reality and imagination. In the Road Not Taken, he reflects over which talent to follow.
He later came to the conclusion that he could be a teacher in poetry and makes his own route to. Frost wrote “The Road Not Taken” for the poet Edward Thomas as a joke ().The Road Not Taken is about choice: how one decision can change a person’s entire life. Frost chose one path over another, and that, he says, “has made all the difference.” Frost is choosing between departing paths in nature, this is a metaphor of choice for choosing between different directions in life.
