help me

i1 need to summarize this poem
2 discuss any literary elements ietone diction similie metaphor symbolysm imagery


1. The Road Not Taken
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claim,Because it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and II took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.

i hate these type of assignments. I had to do one last week in my composition 2 class for a poem. The symbolism is obviosly that the road is life. It seems that the road less traveled is the way of good, "Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claim,Because it was grassy and wanted wear". They use imagery to make the other road seem dark, "I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth". They use imagery when they describe something so well that you can close your eyes and picture it "And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black". Stuff like that. I dont see any similies, comparison using the word like or as. The tone seems to be that the author is grateful for taking the road less traveled, "II took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference". i cant grasp the diction thing yet myself so i cant say anything about that.

Try using the effects of Frost's rhyme scheme...
Also... the use of repetition in the poem. Extensive use of the word "and" in the first Stanza shows the Traveler's indecisiveness. The poem shifts and there is much less repetition showing the Traveler's decision and that he is happy with his choice
