The main theme of the poem “The Road Not taken is that man is described by the choices he or she makes. The speaker describes himself as facing a choice between which of two roads to take. Through the speakers experience the poem explores the nature of choices and what it means to choose a path without much consideration.
Another significant theme of the poem is fate. The actual conflict on the argument arises when the speaker reaches a crossroad, As the first worse says “two roads diverged in a yellow wood”. A high point in man’s life when he or she finally chooses the first option.
The speaker then analyses between two options trying to select the better one. The two roads are “as just a fair”. The speaker carefully makes a choice but soon realises he might have made a mistake.
According to the poem fate continuously push us forward despite our attempt to make our own decision.
