Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A feast for lovers of American literature-the work of our greatest poet, redesigned and relaunched for a new generation of readers

No poet is more emblematically American than Robert Frost. From "The Road Not Taken" to "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," he refined and even defined our sense of what poetry is and what it can do. T. S. Eliot judged him "the most eminent, the most distinguished Anglo-American poet now living," and he is the only writer in history to have been awarded four Pulitzer Prizes.

Henry Holt is proud to announce the republication of four editions of Frost's most beloved work for a new generation of poets and readers.

The only comprehensive volume of Frost's verse available, comprising all eleven volumes of his poems, this collection has been the standard Frost compendium since its first publication in 1969.

Robert Frost (1874-1963) is widely regarded as one of America's finest poets. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry on four different occasions, and also served as Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress.

The most comprehensive volume of Frost's verse available, collecting all eleven of his books of poetry, The Poetry of Robert Frost has been the standard Frost compendium since it first appeared in 1969. Henry Holt/Owl Books is pleased to announce the republication of this classic collection of wit, wisdom, and wordcraft. A universally beloved poet whose work remains as fresh and memorable as it is accessible and beautiful is now available for a new generation of students, scholars, and poetry lovers.

"Frost has bequeathed to his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding."John F. Kennedy

"Frost was the first American poet who could honestly be reckoned a master-poet by world standards."Robert Graves

"[Our] most eminent [and] most distinguished . . . Anglo-American poet."T.S. Eliot

"Frost [is among] the greatest of the American poets of the 20th century."Randall Jarrell

"No other American poet has so much art or so much subject matter."Mark Van Doren

"Of all the poetry written in our generation, Frost's is most likely to stand the test of time."Lewis Gannett
