One of the most analyzed poems in American literature is “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. Most students cannot understand that the choice made by the speaker can be viewed from different perspectives. I would look at the conversation with Theodore Roethke on perspectives after a reading of the poem so students can understand that the message of the poem has many different interpretations based on the perspective of the reader.
