In the poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost, The poem opens on an individual, the speaker and protagonist, who have met an intersection that he is voyaging. The fork offers the speaker a selection of streets, and we immediately come to comprehend that these streets symbolize decision all in all: all of us arrives at endless byways of our lives, and we need to settle on decisions dependent on what restricted data we have around then. The speaker remains in the forested areas, thinking about an obstacle on the road. The two different ways are similarly worn and similarly overlaid with un-trodden leaves. The speaker picks one, disclosing to himself that he will take the other one more day. However he realizes it is far-fetched that he will have the chance to do as such. Also, he concedes that some time or another later on he will reproduce the scene with a slight bend: He will guarantee that he took the less-voyaged street.
At the beginning of the poem, Frost indicates “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.” These two lines show, assuming that it might even be the better alternative of the two, since it is verdant and looks less worn than the other way and however, since the speaker has really strolled on the subsequent street, the person believes that as a general rule the two streets more likely than not been pretty much similarly worn-in. In these two sentences, the speaker is discussing the outcome of his decision. He is indicating that one path’s outcome looked better than the other path’s outcome and therefore he took it. I feel this specific part of the poem resembles a part of everyone’s lives. We constantly need to make decisions on a regular basis. We also all have a moment in life where we feel stuck, but we must choose one “path” over the other.
The poem demonstrates all the terms of imagery, metaphor, symbol, denotation, and connotation is a good method to show the speaker’s future in their life to settle on a choice occurs for themselves. This poem could have unlimited implications to it since one could see that his past made the explorer need to have a superior life or the injury of disappointments that the voyager has since they’re not ready to pick between two streets. The denotation for the word wear is to use habitually for clothing, adornment, or assistance and it can also mean to hold the rank or dignity or position signified by. This word has both a positive and negative connotation. It is positive because it can be used to signify a good action such as wearing a crown. It is negative because it can also mean energy wasted gradually. For example, I am worn out from all the work today.
