100th Anniversary Edition

Poems by Robert Frost A Boys Will and North of Boston

 

The publication of A Boys Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914) marked the debut of Robert Frost as a major talent and established him as the true poetic voice of New England. Four of his volumes would win the Pulitzer Prize before his death in 1963, and his body of work has since become an integral part of the American national heritage.

 

This is the only edition to present these two classics in their original form. A Boys Will introduced readers to Frosts unmistakable poetic voice, and in North of Boston, we find two of his most famous poems, “Mending Wall” and “The Death of the Hired Man.” With an introduction by distinguished critic and Amherst professor William H. Pritchard and an afterword by poet and critic Peter Davison, this centennial edition stands as a complete and vital introduction to the work of the quintessential modern American poet.

Review:

Some six months ago there appeared in London a modest little green-covered book, entitled North of Boston. It was by an American living in England, so its publication on the other side of the Atlantic came about quite naturally, and was no reflection on the perspicacity of our publishers at home. To those of us who admire Mr. Frost's book it is no small pleasure to take up this new edition, bearing an American imprint, and feel that the stigma of non-comprehension so often put upon us by expatriated Americans can never be justified in this case....Amy Lowell, The New Republic, 1915 (read The New Republic's entire review)

Synopsis:

A Bays Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914) marked the debut of Robert Frost as a major talent. Four of his volumes won the Pulitzer Prize before his death in 1963, and his body of work has since become an integral part of the American national heritage.

Synopsis:

Poet Robert Frost's first two collections of poetry are together in this one volume. "A Boy's Will" (1913) is the book that introduced readers to Frost's unmistakable poetic voice, and "North of Boston" (1914) includes two of his most famous poems, "Mending Wall" and "Death of a Hired Man". Includes a newly updated bibliography.

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.

Poetry is what is lost in translation... these words of Robert Brown hold very true with this book. In a weak attempt to "comment on" or write whatever feelings passed through my mind when i read this book, i'd just like to say that this book is wonderful and ought to be read by everyone.
