Poem-a-Day: "The Road Not Taken"

A poem selected by Sung Yeon Jo, English 348:

"The Road Not Taken," by Robert Frost.

Read or listen to Robert Frost read it:

"The Road Not Taken" is a poem by Robert Frost, published in 1916 in the collection Mountain Interval. This poem is about the two different roads humans face during life’s journey and one’s desire for the destiny. Frost (March 26, 1874–January 29, 1963) was an American poet. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech. His work is about complex social and philosophical themes. One of the most popular and critically respected American poets of his generation, Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry.
