....The road not taken BY Robert frost
Robert Frost moved to New England at the age of 11, and I think knowing this colors what we see when we read the poem. It speaks of a yellow wood and undergrowth. When I read it, I see a fall day in the woods of New England--and I suppose that comes to my mind because I know he was in NE when it was written.
Had he lived in Montana or another forested area, I would likely picture the forests of all trees and dark, damp undergrowth.
Robert Frost lived for many years in New England, a rural area in the northeastern part of the United States famous for its natural beauty. The area is characterized by hills, mountains, lakes and forests, farms and small towns. In autumn, the area comes alive with the changing colors of the autumn leaves- red, orange, and yellow. Hiking in the woods is a very popular New England sport, not only for the locals, but also for the many visitors from all over the world who come to enjoy the spectacular autumn scenery. His poems reflect the sights and sounds of the area, the scenes of everyday life and the natural patterns of New England speech,Thus his poetry reflects his rural New England roots but it isnt limited to that region. He followed verse forms that were traditional but also pioneered a unique rhythm in his poetry. Most of all, he introduced poetic use of everyday speech and vocabulary that makes his poetry both modern and traditional, regional and universal at the same time,
It is said that while living in Gloucestershire (England) in 1914, Frost frequently took long walks with Edward Thomas .his friend, through the English countryside. Thomas frequently chose a route to enable him to show his American friend a rare plant or a special vista; but often before the end of the walk, Thomas would regret the choice he had made and would sigh over what they might have seen if they had taken a "better" direction. Frost is said to have teased his English friend, on more than one occasion, about the "wasted regrets." Frost believing in the philosophy of not looking back perhaps found something romantic in sighing over what might have been.
