SYMBOLISM OF 2 Robert Frost’s in “The Path Not Taken”, Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path”, and Jean  Rhys’s “I Used to Live Here Once” focus on one particular theme that is  the “Journey”.  Each of them have showed a particular journey through which life can change. Out of  many things in these three works,  there is one thing common.  That no matter what  journey a  person takes when  there is a lot of hurdles and hardship standing in his way  to demotivate him.  The term journey has different meaning according to different people. Some  people consider a  journey as only the  distance they have traveled while forgetting  that  there can be great meaning beyond each step is taken. While focusing on destination,  people neglect to recognize the value of the  whole process that gets them there. The  exhilaration and excitement of a  capricious voyage allows people to learn positive and  negative things of different people they meet while traveling and explore different places  which turns out to be useful for the rest of the life. The journey posesses an  ultimate  power which change peoples thinking, concepts, and ideas which later on predictably  change the whole person individually.  Robert Frost, Eudora Welty and Jean Rhys displayed their point of view about  journey in their work. Each one have defined journey in different prospective through  different themes of journey in their work. In poem “The Path Not Taken”, Robert Frost  brilliantly portrays the choices people make  in their lives, and the impact those choices  have on  their  future.  The poem displays that people's choices have a long term effect  on who they become in the future.(Tischler, 2007, 125-130) This poem also shows that

SYMBOLISM OF 3 when people reach  a point where they have a choice to make on their decisions, now it  depends on that person  to adopt regular way of solution for his problem or do what few  people do to find out solution of their problems.  (Shurr, 2003, 584-590). They have to  select one path and once the decision is taken then it’s almost difficult and impossible to  retrace steps. Thus, people end becoming what they are due to their choices they have
