Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Poetry of Robert Frost brings together the full contents of eleven of Frost's individual books of verse, from A Boy's Will through In the Clearing.

Robert Frost has long been recognized as one of America's greatest poets. Besides occupying a central and commanding position in American letters, he is one of our few poets whose work is widely read both here and abroad. As we approach the 125th anniversary of his birth, let us revisit the poems whose roots grow deeper into the American culture with age.

More than 350 poems make up this new volume, which was scrupulously prepared under the editorship of Edward Connery Lathem, a Frost scholar, the librarian of Dartmouth College, and a friend of the poet.

Mr. Lathem records in his notes extensive bibliographical information about the publication of Robert Frost's poetry during the nearly three-quarters of a century from 1894, when his first poem appeared in a publication of national circulation, to the final volume the poet worked on just before his death. The editor also carefully traces textual changes Frost made in the poetry over the years.

This handsome volume is a lasting tribute to America's best-loved poet.

Review:

"New poem after new poem makes clear how deeply each Frost poem bears on all poems, and how surely all are a constant symbol of his life's commitment to make metaphors that clarify the dark paradoxes they contain." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

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

Synopsis:
