The Road Not Taken and Other Poems - Robert Frost

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.

 

Robert Frost

 

August 1, 1915: Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken was first published in the Atlantic Monthly 102 years ago today. While the poem works as a metaphor for the weight we put on turning points in our lives, Frost later insisted the verses were simply inspired by a literal walk in the woods.
