If you recall anything about the Robert Frost poem “The Road Not Taken,” it is the last three lines.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Strangely, taking that part out of context changes the entire meaning of the poem. Dave Hiskey of Today I Found Out explains how the poem is really about the difficulty of making choices. Notice he titled the poem after the road he didn’t take.
The poem later influenced Frost’s friend Edward Thomas in making a fateful decision that would lead to his death. Listen as Hiskey tells that tale, or read it at Today I Found Out. -Thanks, Daven!
