    “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost, recognizes the theme of making choices. In the poem, the speaker comes across a fork in the road when walking in the woods on an autumn day. Presented before him are two alternatives, with one option reasonably obvious and the other more subtle. He anticipates that one path has been traveled on more often than the other; however both paths are equally untraveled. While the speaker desires to follow both routes, he can only choose one, thus he arbitrarily…

    Forever and ever the road seemed to stretch, as though it was designed with no end in mind — as though it was designed to go on forever. This would not have been all that bad had it not been for the fact that I was treading in territory somewhere deep in the heart of Mission, Texas, a city entirely unfamiliar to me. I was surrounded by an unknown frontier, and I knew not which way led home. To make matters a little worse, I had my younger brother, Diego, age 14, in the passenger seat beside me.…

    While reading The Road Not Taken, I was able to grasp the author's intentions. I was able to compare this poem with the decisions we all have to make in life.Wr are often worried or concerned abut a decision we made.

I believe Robert Frost has interpreted most of the decisions we make in life into this poem of a man choosing which path to take in a "yellow wood". We have to make…

    Cormac McCarthy’s novel, The Road, shows how a young boy grows to be independent. This makes me believe that McCarthy’s novel is a coming-of-age story. Through various aspects of his novel, McCarthy shows how humans are hybridized; we are a mix between dependency and autonomy and that determines our identity. As we learn, grow, and mature, we must find a balance between the spectrum of independence and community. In The Road, the boy was depicted as dependent on the father. If the boy needed…
