The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

The second stanza opens with “Then took the other, as just as fair...” This mean that after the speaker had took a thorough inspection of one road; he decides to take the other. Possible evidence why he took the other road is because that particular road had more grass than the other, “because it was grassy and wanted wear” symbolising the love of nature, or in another sense had not been chosen to walk through as much as the other road where the grass is now dead and gone, ”I took the on less travelled by...”. This also represents how Frost is telling us that he is a person who does not follow the norm or has a consensus way of looking at things, but goes in direction which portrays individualism. But then the speaker says “Though as for that the passing there, Had worn them...
