What Are The Poetic Devices Of The Poem The Road Not Taken?

1 Answer

  1. Metaphor: a figure of speech when a term or phrase is used to describe something or do something that it does not practically apply to. For example, yellow woods are the metaphor for making decisions during the hard times of a person’s life.

    Imagery: The use of imagery helps the reader experience the story through all five senses. The poet has included visual imagery like leaves and yellowwoods. 

    Simile: A simile is a literary device used to connect unfamiliar concepts to well-known ones so that readers may understand them quickly. The second stanza has one simile, “as just as fair.” That demonstrates how the poet connected taking the hard route with taking the easy way.

    Personification: The third phrase in the second verse of Robert Frost’s poem personified the road. The phrase “Because it was grassy and wanted wear” in this sentence implies that the road is a living thing that desires to degrade.
