Alexis Joyce Dr. Stilley English 102 MWF 110 509 words Poem analysis: “The Road Not Taken” “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost is a poem about a person who must choose between two different paths in a wooded area. The person tries to analyze which path he should take by peering down one of the paths, but he could only see so far since the path had “bent in the undergrowth”(Frost 725). The traveler finally chooses a path to take. However, by the last stanza it is made clear to the reader that Frost’s poem is more than a story about someone walking through the woods. Frost uses the imagery of a physical paths in the woods to portray the mental paths we must take in our everyday decision making process. The importance of the decision making process is emphasized in the last stanza when Frost writes: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that had made all the difference.”(Frost 725).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
