The Road Not Taken
Assignment: Analyze Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” using one of the following critical approaches (NOT reader response or biographical criticism), using one to two secondary sources to help support your argument. This source must be peer-reviewed and scholarly. Please read lesson four for an explanation about scholarly sources. Make sure that the essay has a strong thesis related to the approach–do not argue that “this poem is best analyzed with this approach.” Again the allowed critical approach choices are:
Marxist and social criticism
While it should primarily use passages from the poem to discuss as evidence, it should also reference 1-2 scholarly sources from outside of your textbook.
