  1. Compare & ContrastPoem #1

  2. Compare & Contrast Poetry Essay • The process of studying both thedifferencesand similarities, side by side, of two separate text. = Poem #2 “A Road Not Taken”

  3. Robert Frost – “A Road Not Taken” X Y “Two roads diverged into a yellow wood” (Stanza 1, line 1)

  10. “and that made all the difference” • Remember there is no right, or wrong. What counts is how you defend and express what you interpret. • Explore the “road not traveled”, and come up with your own unique take!
