A feast for lovers of American literature, the work of our greatest poet. 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. Prior to Frost's death, 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. This comprehensive volume of Frost's verse comprises all eleven volumes of his poems; this collection has been the standard Frost compendium since its first publication in 1969.
Throughout the book, I felt as if the poems were explaining life itself. The variety of the poems is intriguing, and was a good overall read. Though, for some people, this is not their type of book, since there is no exciting plot, no witty characters. This book is for those would like to enjoy poetry at its finest. The Poetry of Robert Frost: The Collected Poems was both memorable, as well as intriguing.
