After watching Orange is the New Black I started to think about the poem, The Road Not Taken because of the episode Blood Donut.
In the episode they talk about the point of the poem and it comes down to this, “everyone wants to look back and think that their choices matter. But in reality, shit just happens the way that it happens, and it doesn’t matter.”
But after reading an article on Slate they say “the joke’s on us, apparently.”
David Haglund, a senior editor for Slate, has speculated that Frost may have deliberately misled his readers. Various quotes from Frost’s correspondences suggest that he knew people would misunderstand the meaning — and their confusion even amused him.
Do you remember the poem The Road Not Taken? Take another read and tell me what you think.
