CBSE Class 9 - English (C) - The Road Not Taken - Summary

The Road Not Taken

Summary
The poem is a metaphor about the dilemma of taking decisions that we have to make in our lives.

Poet: Robert Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963)

Summary

It was autumn and the leaves had turned yellow. The poet or the traveller was passing through a wood. He stood at a place where the road forked into two different directions. The roads were covered with yellow leaves. It appeared nobody had passed through these roads since morning. The port was in a fix which road to take. He could choose only one path. He glanced at both the roads. One of the road bent in the bushes while the other one was grassy. Fewer people had travelled by that road. He chose to walk on that road. He kept the other road for some other day though he did not hope come back to that place again.


He made his choice, which was an important decision. Maybe he would regret that he did not take the other road. After a long time, he would share his experiences with future generations about the choice he made and the difference it made in his life.
