"The Road Not Taken" Robert Frost

The point of view in "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost helps communicate the universal truth about how all people struggle to find the right path in life. In the last stanza Frost writes, "I shall be telling this with a sigh / Somewhere ages and ages hence." This example of point of view helps the reader to identify with the narrator. Furthermore, the reader is better able to understand the truth beneath making important life choices and the reflections that one often makes regarding these choices. Poetry can better inform readers on this universal truth than any formal historical document.

What is First Person p.o.v.?This narrative mode reveals the plot through the viewpoint of the narrator who is also a character. The reader is also able to understand the narrator's deepest thoughts. Language such as "I," "me," or "we" reveal the use of 1st person p.o.v. For example, "I shall be teling this with a sigh."
