A Deconstructive Study in Robert Frost's Poem: The Road not Taken

Ahmad Satam Hamad Al-Jumaily


"The Road not Taken," is, no doubt, one of Robert Frost's major poems. Any critic of the poem can go so far as to say that the poem is one of the World's masterpieces. The text gives itself to reading and speculation by its power of generating new meanings, everlasting sweetness, and aesthetic value.  Critics wrote controversial essays on the poem and its meanings, yet, no particular reading can be considered inclusive. All the readings lead one to the other, but no critic can say that this particular reading is better.

This study tries to come, as close as it can, to the text in order to deconstruct it and come up with a new reading of the poem by applying the principles of the theory of Deconstruction, for the first time, to the text and to the main differences upon which the aesthetic value of the poem rests.
