  1. - one road was easier than the other according to Frost
    - at first one looked easier than the other but then they both came out the same.
    - profane and sacred roads

  2. The two roads represent two choices in his life. He struggles to choose between the two, undecided of which is the right road. He ends up choosing the "right" path due to the statement "And that has made all the difference." The road less traveled led to his center.

    Notes
    choosing the road of life to try to find oneself
    He choose the path less traveled to be orginal, but the paths ended up looking similar.
    since he took that certain path, it made the path more powerful to himself because it affected how his life turned out in the end
    He became who is because of the path he took
    the yellow road indicating the season of fall
    he knew he couldn't be the same person and take both roads

    Referring to the poem "The Path Not Taken" we agreed that the person is debating between two paths. Both paths are equally not walked, but the person has no idea where they will take him to. The person makes a decision on a path and has faith to continue with it, still unaware where it will take him to. He knows where ever the path will lead him to, it will shape the person he will become in the future.

  5. This poem means the road of life and the author is taking the road less traveled which is an uncharted territory to get to the center or his accomplishments.

  6. -finding a path to one's center, ie. life
    -talking about life and coming across life choices and making a decision
    - relates to the concept of the labyrinth, about self-examination and meditation, trying to decide which 'road' in life to take

  7. In connection with the class discusssion of the poem, by Robert Frost, there was a connection between the "Road of Life" that was seen in the movie with the John Smith. The poem also goes over the Center of life when Frost writes about "ages of ages hence" meaning that would be the climax of his life. The poems two road paints the picture of having two different ways to go and he ultmiatley chooses the one to make him happy.

  8. -He took the road that was never traveled.
    -Different people take different roads.
    -He wants to take both roads, but he cant.
    -The better road, people had not walked it yet.
    -He would be unique.
    -Once you take a road, there is no way back.
    -He is who he is, because he chose the "One road, and that road is more significant than the others, then it becomes the center.
    -center of self: "somewhere ages and ages hence."

  9. He uses the concepts by choosing the one road or the best road, and making the right decision. Also, by choosing the road that will lead him to an unknown place, which made a difference in his life. With this decision, the outcomes can bring struggles and consequences.

  11. In Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken," he describes the choice one must make as he contemplates which road to take in life. Each road has a different outcome and ultimately determines who a person will become. There is no concept of a profane road or sacred road; they are subjective. The goal he aspires is to reach the "center," or the one moment that defines his life.

  12. Robert Frost poem " The Road Not Taken", talks about how there are two roads to take to life, and how only one can be chosen. He decides to take the road less taken, and realizes that that one road less taken made a difference for him. Perhaps, because both roads looked the same but only one was the right one to success.

  13. The two roads in Robert Frost's poem are like the paths that could be taken to "the center" as explained in "The Myth of the Eternal Return." The center is a divine place where man and higher powers can unite. In the poem, Frost explains that he chooses the road that is less walked. This is because he decides to do the right thing which not everyone has the self-discipline to do.

  14. In the poem of Robert Frost, it talks about two different roads, and picks the uncharted road. The road is the pathway to the direction to the centre of the self to find ones purpose in life. The road chosen has never been traveled on, and that symbolizes finding direction to one’s own life. If he chooses to pick the wrong road, he then faces consequences for his own self.
