...roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference.” Thus in the fourth stanza the poet discernibly and openly mulls over the past from a futuristic vantage point and acknowledges the fact that it was the choices he made in his life that shaped what he was in a present context. Moreover, the appeal of this apt conclusion is not limited to the plight of the poet, but is rather ageless and universal in its scope and ramifications. To put it precisely, The Road not Taken is a simple poem by Robert Frost, which is imbued with deep and multiple meanings. That is why its appeal is not...

...Road Transport Economics Insert (s) Externalities and Road Transport Economics The existence of externalities such as congestion and pollution often negatively affect resource allocation in road transport by distorting the various pricing mechanisms thereby resulting in the less than optimal allocation of resources to the sector. This is particularly attributed to the fact that market prices normally ignore the costs imposed on the third parties and thus the pricing mechanism can never reflect the true social costs of economic activities. In today’s world economy, road transport plays a vital role. Condition in which marginal communal costs is equal to marginal communal benefits... Externalities and Road ...

...Road Less Taken” The main theme of “The Road Less Taken” by Robert Frost is the decisions an individual makes and how they determine one’s future. Frost uses irony effectively to tell the story that the road one takes in life can either represent a right or wrong decision, but it ultimately counts. Frost uses irony sparkling from the entire words of the poem and its tone. Frost gets revered for using subtle irony. The poem is a parody of people who regret not taking other paths in life keeping the one they took. Irony gets depicted in the last stanza when the persona looks back at the choices he made from a time in the future. This puts more meaning to it than... there were initially. There...

...Road Truly Taken in Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” Hallmark cards and graduation speeches have taken Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” in its literal positive tone. They interpret the poem as an account of American autonomy, where people can make their own decisions and have the independence to pursue their dreams. Deconstruction, however, sees the inconsistencies between the popular interpretation and its real illustration. Deconstruction shows that the poem might look like a masculine approach to life because of its outward principles of courage, independence, and aggression. The road truly taken is the most popular one, not the road less taken, because people have no autonomy... the better...

Nevertheless, he admits that he will never be at that junction again but someday he will tell the story with a twist and claim he chooses the road not taken.

...roads, there are numerous factors that describe the traveler's as well as each person's life. Life is not constantly about the course taken, but sometimes the course not taken. Accepted account of this composition is that it is a shout out for the reader to create his or her own approach in life and not go behind the path that others might have already been taken. The poem's final lines, where the narrator announced that taking the pathway which was "less trekked by" has constructed all the distinction, can be observed... Every human all the way through the route of their life is obliged to make decisions. This portion of life is true far and wide and has no occasion or cultural barricades. It happens to ...
