Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The library of America is dedicated to publishing America's best and most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as the "finest-looking, longest-lasting editions ever made" (The New Republic), Library of America volumes make a fine gift for any occasion. Now, with exactly one hundred volumes to choose from, there is a perfect gift for everyone.<P>"In presenting Frost to us so fully and intelligently, The Library of America series has exceeded its usual high standard and produced a book you can't spiritually afford not to own". — William Pritchard, The Boston Globe

Synopsis:

Here, based on extensive research into his manuscripts and published work, is the first authoritative and truly comprehensive collection of his writings. Eagerly awaited by scholars and general readers alike, it brings together in a single volume all the major poetry, a generous selection of uncollected poems, all of Frost's dramatic writing, and the most extensive gathering of his prose writings ever published. The core of this collection is the 1949 Complete Poems of Robert Frost, the last edition supervised by the poet himself. This version of the poems is free of the unauthorized editorial changes introduced into subsequent editions. Also included is In The Clearing (1962), Frost's final volume of poetry. Verse drawn from letters, articles, pamphlets, and journals makes up the largest selection of uncollected poems ever assembled, including nearly two dozen beautiful early works printed here for the first time. Also gathered are all the dramatic works: three plays and two verse masques. The unprecedented prose section includes more than three times as many items as any other collection available. It is rich and diverse, presenting many newly discovered or rediscovered pieces. Especially unusual items include Frost's written contribution for John F. Kennedy's inauguration and two fascinating 1959 essays on "The Future of Man". Several manuscript items are published here for the first time, including the essays "'Caveat Poeta'" and "The Way There", Frost's remarks on being appointed poetry consultant to the Library of Congress in 1958, the preface to a proposed new edition of North of Boston, and many others. A selection of letters represents all of Frost's important comments aboutprosody, poetics, style, and his theory of "sentence sounds".

About the Author

Robert Lee Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874. When he was ten, his father died and he and his mother moved to New England. He attended school at Dartmouth and Harvard, worked in a mill, taught, and took up farming, before he moved to England, where his first books of poetry, A Boy’s Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were published. North of Boston brought him recognition as the preeminent voice of New England and as one of America’s major poets. In 1915 he returned to the United States and settled on a farm in New Hampshire. Four volumes of his poetry, New Hampshire (1923), Collected Poems (1930), A Further Range (1936), and A Witness Tree (1942) were all awarded the Pulitzer Prize. He died in 1963.
