Poems by Robert Frost Peggy Marshall AML 2000-23 For this week’s assignment I was asked to read two poems by Robert Frost which was “The Road Not Taken,” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” I used the ten steps of poetry analysis to interpret both poems and got a good understanding of both poems. I really enjoyed these two poems and look forward to reading some more of Robert Frost’s work. He has a unique way of writing and I really liked listening to him because it made the poem just comes so alive. In the poem “The Road Not Taken,” the author is talking about the different paths they could have took in life and that they chose the way that was less traveled and by choosing this path, it has made so many differences in their life. The conflict of this poem was choosing the correct road even when both roads look exactly the same, don’t be scared of one that is less traveled. The speaker resolved this conflict by choosing the road less traveled. In the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” the speaker is talking about stopping in the woods of someone he doesn’t know and watching the woods feel with snow all the while his horse thinks it is awkward to be doing so. The conflict of the poem is the speaker doesn’t want to be seen in the woods and he has miles to go before he can sleep. I don’t think that the conflict was resolved because the speaker still has miles to go to sleep however he did take the time to see the beauty of the snow in the wooded trees. Both poems are great and I truly enjoyed reading them. I remember reading “The Road Not Taken” in middle school and my teacher made us all remember this poem and cite it in front of the class. I really enjoyed this and have always enjoyed reading poems by Robert Frost. He is a great author and I always know when it is his work that I’m going to enjoy the assignment.
