The Road Not Taken Explication 


In the poem “The Road Not Taken,” by Robert Frost, he addresses the concept of indecisiveness. We make choices every day from as little as what to eat to something big like a career or internship. Sometimes, we may be placed in a position to choose life or death. Making the right decision is hard for all individuals, mainly the dawdling ones who believe in procrastination. The speaker seems to want the reader to verify that if there’s a way “in” there would be a way “out”. In the eyes of the traveler, their thoughts are extremely impacted by the past and being stuck in the middle of the wood, they know that they can only choose one route. As in the first stanza, lines one and five, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood” and “To where it bent in the undergrowth” reveal a strong emotion of pressure, regret, and fear that indicates the purpose of life. These two lines contain imagery, symbolism, metaphor, denotation, connotation, and irony. While the poem has numerous interpretations, I think it’s the beauty in life that comes within the hardships of an individual. 

In the first stanza of line one, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,” the speaker right away gives off an illustration of the paths being divided into two and is yellow rather than typical green. By using imagery, the setting and description convey the intensity of no guidance, which makes the traveler analyze the surroundings carefully. Besides, the road is a symbolism of life. Just like what people say you never know where you can end up in life. Perhaps, the speaker is suggesting a convenient way for the burden to be lifted. Or maybe judging by appearance. The two roads represent the importance of an outcome. A very unique way of making this poem interesting was a metaphor twist, Frost compares himself or the speaker as a traveler. The split roads metaphorically have consequences that could be pleasant or not. 

The next line, “To where it bent in the undergrowth,” is when the speaker wants to go both ways and still can’t let go of that idea. The curiosity of the traveler decided to explore. The first step was glancing down at one of the roads. However, the traveler could only see up to a certain point and not furthermore. From the observation, the speaker is realizing their past mistakes. Or maybe thinking of a way to prevent having another failure. For all we know, we can feel the traveler’s struggles and fear by the diction implied.

These two lines have many denotations and connotations hidden. The word “road” means a route leading from one place to the next that may or may not use transportations. This reminds me of people who love to be on the go. As for the connotation, it’s the feeling of being overwhelmed with choices to make. With the word “two” in front of roads, it denotes the quantity of a duplet and is bigger than the sum of one. When it connotes, this could mean the outcome of life can be “even” or “fair”. When the words combine, “two roads” gives a feeling of encouragement to life and battle through the uneasy. The next pair of words “yellow woods” offers some insight into the poem. The word “yellow wood” has many possible meanings to it like; any various trees having yellowish wood or yielding a yellow extract or the expansion of trees. The season is likely to be Autumn because it reminds me of the time I’ve seen American elm trees and sugar maple trees. Several ways to explicate this further is separating yellow away from wood. The color “yellow” gives an emotion of happiness and warmth. It also suggests that time is precious and don’t take it for granted. The word “undergrowth” is too cryptic and needs some unfolding. It means plants growing in dense places or something beneath the ground. However, the connotation of undergrowth is elucidated as its inability for the traveler to see the future. Being in the woods must feel like a maze, you can’t see the outside until you find the exit. 

The two lines merge creates a significant message. It gives the reader a better understanding that judgments are not going to help you find the answer. The sense of confusion will only lead to harsh and negative energy. Because of the contradiction of choosing between two roads that are detailed as “both equally worn”. The traveler decided to travel to the one that seems “less” traveled. This technique is called Irony. It was used to portray the situation of how his choices didn’t match up. Though, we can say this changes the traveler’s life in some way. Whether it’s for the better or worse. Who knows?

I love that there are endless ways and meanings people can take from this poem. Nevertheless, I truly believe that to make the right decisions, everyone has to go through a misfortunate time in life (failures and regrets) to know their worth.

Explication of “Meditation on a Brooklyn Bench”


I am a worry type person, a person who worries about everything, pass,now,and future. I think at any moment that my mind is empty,think about what  I did, and what I going to do,this maybe is a kind of meditation. In the poem “Meditation on a Brooklyn Bench,” wrote by Abraham Benjamin, a lonely man looking for a quiet place and start thinking. This poem show audiences a scene of a speaker promenade on a waterfront in Brooklyn at nightfall and sat on bench,looking at the river,boats come and gone,speaker start reminiscent his years in New York,then the tide is coming.  “River”  appear many times in the poem,it is not just a river,it mean an idea,a symbol . In the poem “Covered over by the water of the East River” and “the tide coming in now,full force,danger,looking for me,”these 2 lines are the best line to explain the idea of river. Symbolism,personification,and connotation are the tools used by the author to deliver his idea.

In the first line “Cover over by the waters of East River.”  The things covered by water of East river is the memory of speaker about his wife,son,and years works in New York. The denote of the word “water”is a physical matter and memory only exit in our brain, in other word,water can not really cover memory of a man. Water is an idea it  symbolize everyone who live in New York City,the society of New York City. The thousand of people created a society,just like a thousand drops of water combine together become a stream,then streams become a river. The speaker is one of the “waters drop” in this river called New York City. In this huge river,everyone is a “water drop”,they have their own story,family,life,  but no one really know all the story of all the “water drop”. Only the “water drop” in the surface will be  see,such as a person with power,rich or in the upper class of the society. The story of “water drop” under water surface will not be heard and told,they are just nobody. Like other “water drops”, story and memory of the speak only know by himself and bury deep in the class society,  the reason for the speaker’s memory cover by water showed, he is a middle age man from low class in the New York City society,  work for a decade  but still in the same class of society.

Then the next line “tide coming in now,full force,danger,looking for me,” “tide” and  “looking” is the keyword to unfold meaning of the sentence. “Tide” is a natural phenomena that happen in sea or river,the sea level change due to the gravity of  Earth. In the poem “water” is a symbol of  New York City Society,the change or phenomenon happen in  “water” foreshadow something change in the society environment. In other word “tide” connote the change happen in the surrounding of speaker,it can be the change or physical environment or society environment. Only creature can look for something, it is one of human action, author used  personification , give “tide”a human property by the action “looking”. When you’re a looking for something,you’re target something, and the speaker will be the target of this “tide”. The word “danger” and “full force ” is the show the “tide” can be a disaster or something worse happen and coming fast,a threat is coming.

When we combine the first line and second line we can picture:a middle age man from the lower class of New York City society  feeling the change of the society or the environment  surround him,maybe he lost his job,lost his meaning of life,but he has to change to avoid the result of disaster. Every crisis is an opportunity,it depend would you like to change yourself.

 Explication of Two lines of Poetry from “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost

In the poem, “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost, what people are likely to face when they stand on the edge of a choice because life is full of choices, the choices we make determine the course of our lives. The choices we make have an impact on our future. If we make the wrong choices, we will regret it, but we can’t go back. So we have to choose wisely. The two lines towards the beginning of the poem: “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood” & “And sorry I could not travel both.” It seems to me that these two lines are the core of the poem and have a unique meaning. These two lines, especially representing the poem terms of symbolize, consonance, imagery, denotation, and connotation. While many people understand this poem to mean that people’s decisions matter, I think it actually about life is full of choices (whether it is the big choices or the small choices) and all the choices are different.

In the first line, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood.” The poet uses one detail in the first line of this poem — “yellow wood.” And made it the symbol of the entire forest (symbolize). The use of a feature to define wood suggests one of the basic idea/theme of the poem: there is a decision to be made and a life will be changed. Consonance is found in the d’s of “roads” “diverged” and “wood.” Using imagery, imagery is used to make the reader feel things through the five senses.The poet uses the sense of sight such as yellow wood, that helps the reader actually perceive what they are reading. The yellow wood suggests that the poem is set in fall. In the fall, the leaves of all the plants turn bright yellow. Acknowledging this “road” can reveal both denotation and connotation for the lines I selected. The denotation of this word is a wide way leading from one place to another; especially one with a specially prepared surface which vehicles can use. The connotation of this word symbolize the journey of life, a road forking off into two paths symbolize a choice. And the word “yellow wood” also can reveal both denotation and connotation. The denotation of this word is any of a number of trees which have yellowish timber or yield a yellow dye. The connotation means the yellow wood also evokes a fleeting sensation; One season will soon give way to another. This means that one choice/decision you make today will soon be replaced by your next choice/decision. 

The next line, “And sorry I could not travel both.” The speaker only can choose one way at a time, telling himself that he will take the other another day. “Travel” can reveal both denotation and connotation for the lines I selected. The denotation of “travel” means to make a journey, typically of some length or aboard. The connotation is which road to take? The speaker wants to take both, but the speaker only can choose one because this is physically impossible.  And the word “both” also can reveal both denotation and connotation. The denotation of “both” means used to refer to two people or things, regarded and identified together. The connotation is the choices/decisions. Before taking the path, the speaker always wanted to know how it was. Was it suitable for him/her or not. It always happens in our life when we have choices.

When two lines combine, it tells the reader the theme in this poem is life is full of choices, when faced with a choice, you can only make one choice, you cannot choose both. Each choice is not the same, the choice may bring you some positive or may bring you some negative. Once you make a choice you have to take the consequences.

Poetry Explication



Explication of Where I’m From by Willie Perdomo


“Where I’m From” gives a deep description of the area in which the author lives. When a woman asks where the speaker is from, he remembers the positive and negative occurrences in his neighborhood. Willie Perdomo’s description gives the poem a tone in which things that appear to be alarming compared to the norm is quite standard to where he lives. With his words he manages to show the readers the hidden allure of where he is from masked by negative occurrences. The speaker subtly describes the injustice in his community with a tone of aggravation. He gives the readers a glimpse of the relationship his neighbors have with the police in his area. This includes him describing the pointless harassment and murders of the people in his neighborhood. The two lines in the middle of the poem; “Where I’m from, the police come into your house without knocking. They throw us off rooftops and say we slipped,” are one of the most significant lines in this poem. These lines represent symbolism and have assonance that describe the exploitation in his area. The explication of these two lines will describe the injustice of the people in his community that seem to be a norm.

In the first line, “Where I’m from, the police come into your house without knocking,” Willie Perdomo shows the readers the abuse of power by authority in his neighborhood. The tone of this line shows that the author is annoyed. I can tell he is irritated through his choice of words. He says “without knocking” as if the police do not have the right to be in his or anybody else’s house without warning. Even though, this line is very straight forward it also symbolizes the lack of freedom that the people in his area have. The police in his community have made people feel unsafe in their own home just because they are able to. The author uses assonance in the first line with the words from and come which gives that part of the poem a certain flow.

The second line, “They throw us off rooftops and say we slipped,” the speaker uses graphic imagery to show the readers the perilous injustice that goes on in his neighborhood. Based off this line it shows the deaths of people in his community in which the police have not taken accountability for. He also shows how the police can get away with their wrongdoing by being untruthful. This line is very straight forward and easy to understand. He narrates his community’s unpleasant run ins with the authority. Willie Perdomo describes it in a way as if it is something that he is not pleased about but accepts. He realizes that there are just some things that cannot be changed where he is from. Even though, he comes to terms with the tyranny in where he lives, it is clear it still puts on him edge.

With these lines combined, Willie Perdomo exposes the inequality that the people in his community face. The speaker skillfully describes his everyday life in which the things that seem to be normal to him should not really be normal at all. Even though, I chose two lines from the poem that highlight the negative, the author also chose to show the positive in his neighborhood. He ends his poem on a positive note which shows the multidimensionality of where he is from. Although most of the poem is related to violence, class issues, and the grapple of the author’s neighborhood, the last stanza exhibits an instance of beauty, morality, and the affinity that we have with family.

The Unraveling Of a Portion of “The City in Which I Love You”

                  In the poem “The City in Which I Love You” (pg. 357) by Li-Young Lee, the speaker elucidates a desire to see someone again. It is unknown if Lee is portrayed as the speaker in this poem, but it doesn’t hinder the feelings that is being conveyed. The speaker delineates that someone, possibly a loved one, is missing from his or her’s life, hence the sad tone. By utilizing techniques of free verse, the speaker built a platform to express that twinge of living in a city void of a loved one.  The first two lines of the poem, “Morning comes to this city vacant of you. Pages and windows flare, and you are not there” are beneficial to the poem, because it is essentially a small summary of the entire poem. It contains elements that describe the emotion, the plot, and the message conveyed throughout the rest of the poem. These lines accurately represent the literary terms of symbolism, connotation, denotation, consonance, oxymoron, and assonance, to highlight despair and loss. My explication of these two lines will construe how the speaker uses happy words first, to then deviate to sadness.


                   From the first line, the word ‘morning’ insinuates a happy tone. It symbolizes a new beginning, new opportunities to take advantage of, and new memories to forge. There is a cheer, a certain happiness of saying “good morning” to someone, or vice versa. It feels as a promise that this day will be spectacular. Morning can also connote a bad time, since it is considered a new day, people have to wake up to go to work or school early. Also, what if that specific day, something bad is to happen? The speaker possibly dread this morning, because of the realization that the loved one isn’t there anymore. Consonance is found from the words ‘to’ and ‘there’, with the letter ‘t’.  The letter ‘t’ is considered a restless letter; it connotes seeking answers to spiritual questions. The speaker ponders where he or she’s loved one is.  Moving forward in the first line, “city vacant” is a classic example of oxymoron. The word ‘city’ denotes an inhabited place of greater size, population, or importance than a town or village. The word also connotes the specific people who make up a community. This loved one of the speaker may not adore the city as much as the speaker, hence why he or she isn’t vacant. The word ‘vacant’ classifies as “not filled” when relating to a person.  Both ‘city’ and ‘vacant’ are contradictory terms in conjunction, therefore an oxymoron. The speaker possibly made an oxymoron out of the two words to show the shift from happy to sad. ‘Vacant’ can be gazed upon as a sad term, since it suggests emptiness and loss.  Ultimately, the speaker provides this first line to describe a new rudiment with a vacant spot of the speaker’s heart yearning to be filled by this loved one.

                             The next line also displayed a shift from a happy tone to a depressed tone. Starting with the first phrase “Pages and windows flare” exemplify a happy tone, because it alludes to daybreak, a time in the morning where daylight first appears and shine bright on objects like pages and windows. ‘Pages’ denotes a young person who accompanies the bride at a wedding. Weddings are a wonderful event where happiness is at its peak. This word can also connote growth. Pages are made from wood, by extension trees. Trees represent transformation, union, and spiritual nourishment. The speaker may witness this growth around the city, but can only watch, because he or she is without this particular loved one. There is also the word ‘window’ that emphasizes opportunities, and fresh starts, which the speaker believe it is there however, the loved one is not there to bask in this fresh start with the speaker.  As mention before, things associated with morning are essentially positive. The denotation of ‘flare’ suggest this,  since the word ‘flare’  is a sudden brief burst of flame, or light. Additionally, the word ‘flare’ connotes life.  Humans tend to be brimming with happiness during times of the day, especially in the morning because waking up alive to see another day brings a brief joyful emotion. The emotion from that melancholy revelation, “and you are not there” depicts the speaker’s grief of the vacancy of he or she’s heart. From another angle, but similar “and you are not there”  may emphasize pages and windows flaring a sight that the speaker find exquisite, but can’t look at it with that loved one, since he or she is not present to view such a beauty with the speaker. Assonance in this line came from flare and there, within the letter ‘e’. This letter is particularly considered a strong letter which represents ‘communication’. The speaker blatantly aches to communicate with this person who is hold dear in the speaker’s heart.

                                 The explication of the first two lines did indeed display the shifts from happy to depressed tones. The connotation of certain words construe a deeper understanding of the grief the speakers feels, and even hints at what a happy morning could have been if this loved one was around to enjoy it with the speaker. The speaker also seem to emphasize new beginnings, and new opportunities in those lines, that suggest that new great things are in the process for the speaker, and yearns for this loved one to be there, only to be disappointed. Though a new day always supposed to signify a promise for calm, happy day, the tone and language used in these two lines validates that a new day doesn’t necessary mean a good, exciting one, but yet another day of sadness and depression.

Life Within “The Road Not Taken”
The poem, “The Road Not Taken,” by Robert Frost, illustrates life and the choices we make in them. Everyday, a decision is made. Whether it be a good decision or a bad decision, the decision made will affect one’s life moving forward. Take notice of the title of the poem, it says, “The Road Not Taken,” keyword “Not.” It doesn’t say the road that is taken. The speaker and as well, the reader, can be at a questioning of, what if? The first two lines that start the poem, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood/And sorry I could not travel both,” impacts the rest of where the poem is going to go. Throughout each stanza of the poem, the denotation and connotation of words within the lines filled with the use of metaphors and symbols allows us to fulfill the true meaning and theme of the poem.

In the first line, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,” the speaker has two choices and can only pick one. These two roads are an indication of two different life paths. The yellow wood is a metaphor of the setting, the season is currently Fall. The season in which the leaves fall, the colors change, as well as the weather. The season of change. Yellow would be the season and wood itself is representing life. The road symbolizes the journey of life. Either one of these paths could potentially affect the speakers life in a positive or negative way. With just that line alone, the reader can connect with the speaker. In life, there’s typically two choices to make, the easy or hard one. Which I feel these roads represent in some way. They’re obviously going to lead to two different destinations but which one will be worth the walk?

In the second line, “And sorry I could not travel both,” the speaker couldn’t pick both paths of life to explore. The desire the speaker had to begin with, having two roads in front of him/her with different possibilities of life knowing they couldn’t have it all. Emphasizing the word sorry in the line could sound like possible regret. The fact of having more than one option can create curiosity of once again, what if.

When both lines combine, it sets the whole tone of the poem. It allows the reader to grasp the true meaning and theme that Robert Frost wants the readers to understand. The metaphors and symbolism within the poem sets the point across. In life, a decision has to be made. The decision must be made thoroughly as any decision is made. At the end of the poem, the speaker makes it clear to which road was chosen, “the one less traveled by.” The speaker didn’t share whether or not the “the one less traveled by” was the right choice. As the reader, it can create curiosity as it would in one’s own shoes.

                                                  My Papa’s Waltz Explication essay


           In this line from the poem “My Papa’s Waltz,” by Theodore Roethke, the speaker expresses deep emotion towards his relationship with his father. By using a metaphorical comparison of “you beat time on my head,” the phrase “beat time” means that time is passing by and the father is still beating the speaker or the child with his “palm caked hard by dirt,” suggests that the father is a hard worker, maybe a gardener since hands are caked in dirt. “Caked hard by dirt” suggests that the father is working with his hands and the metaphor “caked” means that the hands are not clean but are fully dirty, touching his child. On the other hand, the use of the word “beat” in this event is unfitting. If this line were truly referring to a dance which is a sign of gentle and romance, a more proper and gentle word to use would be “kept”, as in keeping time and not “beat” or waste time. With the poetry explication terms, we can figure out the deeper meanings behind the poet’s message. The author includes connotation and denotation of words, as well as symbolism, which is the main source of understanding this poem unclear poem. Also, a term like an enjambment was appended to the poem “Then waltzed me off to bed – Still clinging to your shirt.”

            Even though we could see the speaker having a hard time sustaining a good relationship with his father, we can see that he is for sure very calm and does not resist anything that is happening in that event. The speaker suggests and demonstrates his relationship with his father through a poetry term symbolism. The author of this poem uses the term symbolism to straighten up the plot of this poem and to promote the idea that “waltzing” back to bed does not necessarily indicate that the speaker is physically dancing with his father. This may be more of a mental state of the character in the poem. Eventually, the reader may realize in the lines that the speaker is trying to promote that the relationship is not so rough, this may be the reason why in the last stanza the author adds the line with the child clinging to his father’s shirt.      

               The lines show a sign that such an event was not pleasing for the speaker, and he felt uncomfortable. The line also connotes that there is abuse present from the drunk father who is being rough with his child. But at the same time, the child seems not to go away from his father but stays connected to him when the speaker adds “still clinging to your shirt.” This strengthens the idea that the relationship between the father and son is at the same time very intense but still, there is a deep connection and love towards each other, since “waltz” is used herein a soft and gentle way. Furthermore, the line that says “Still clinging to your shirt” can be a very powerful demonstration of the love that the son has for his father. The son does not want his father to leave him and clings on to him to stay with him as long as he can before he goes back to bed. This poem is an actual presentation of where an author uses his words to express many different meanings to a reader. The word choice of these two lines brings a reader an idea of the speaker experiencing a great unease and disturbance from his intoxicated father that is rough with him, the author says that ironically because the word choice mostly suggests the opposite of what is happening. Lastly, the two lines of the poem “My Papa’s Waltz” in the last stanza show a lot of symbolism of the relationship between the father and son.

Essay 2-Poetry Explication “Fire and Ice”

Andy Zhang

Essay 2-Poetry Explication

April 12, 2020

Prof. Scanlan, ENG 1121


             In the poem, “Fire and Ice,” by Robert Frost, the speaker first starts by setting the poem in a conversational tone of anaphora. The speaker uses the anaphora of “Some say” as two different sides to create antithesis on whether the world would end in Fire or Ice. Next, the speaker jumps from the argument and indicates that “fire” is connotated as “desire”, and “Ice” is connotated as hate. Then, the speaker shares his preference between “Fire and Ice”. Due to the speakers’ limited personal experience, the speaker would personally more prefer “Fire” over “Ice”. lastly, while the speaker decides to side with “fire” the speaker also emphasizes that “Ice” is also equally “great” with “Fire”. The argument of the poem develops from lines 1 and 2, “Some say the world will end in fire/ Some say in ice.”; where the speaker presents the argument of the topic on how the world is going to end from two different sides, some Fire and some Ice. These two lines specifically represent the poetry elements of anaphora, antithesis, metaphor, and the indication of desire, and hate from denotation of Fire, and Ice.

            In lines 1-2, “Some say the world will end in fire/ Some say in ice.” the speaker uses the poetry element anaphora, the repetition phrase of “Some say” to develop the division between the two groups or side of people. Where one side believes that the world will end in “Fire” and the opposing group believes that the world will end in “Ice”. Moreover, anaphora also helps develop the casual conversational tone between two sides that underplays the seriousness of the topic of how the world will end. The division developed by anaphora between fire and ice also helps elaborate the poetry element Antithesis, the contradistinction of Fire and Ice; where the Fire is contrasted with the Ice, and the speaker’s connotation of fire and ice; desire is contrasted with hatred. Lastly, this is when the last poetry element comes in play; metaphor. The speaker trope Fire as to desire, and Ice as to Hatred. Desire and Hatred applied emotional feelings to Fire and Ice to impose the latent attributes of personification to Fire and Ice.

             From lines 1-2, the phrase “Some say” is connoted as two groups of people that have a different view on how the world is going to end. In the poem, “Fire”, the combustion or burning, in which substances combine chemically with oxygen from the air and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke, is connotated as “desire”, a strong feeling to have something, or wishing for something to happen. Both fire and desire have common powerful positive and negative attributes. They both are representative of destruction. Where the fire is physically destructive, one tiny spark is enough to destroy something that is ten times, a hundred times, immense than itself. And desire, the impact and result of strong, and uncontrollable emotion in a human can be very unstable, and destructive. While on the other hand, in regards to it’s harmful and destructive power, fire is also portrayed as hope, warmth when it is in stable condition; and so is desire. When it is implied with positive attributes like kind, helpful, caring emotion. Lastly, “Ice”, the primary definition of ice is described as frozen water, a brittle transparent crystalline solid. In the poem “Ice” is connotated as “hatred”, an intense dislike, or ill will. Both Ice and Hatred share a couple of common characteristics; the characteristic of rigidity, and frigidity. while Ice displays rigidity and frigidity through the coldness it has from inside out physically, Hatred reveals the absence of love and rigidity from inside and out due to the intense dislike it has toward its foe. Disregard that Ice is connotated as hatred, it can also be connotated as representations of ruthlessness. Ice, the coldness of its temperature already signifies the characteristic of lifelessness or the lack of emotions, thoughts in a living thing. Without emotions, thoughts, one can be ruthless and destructive.
