The fact that I'm focusing more on the editor than the poet, especially when that poet is Robert Frost, should tell you how much of an intrusion the commentary was. It reminded me of a school textbook, where the editor feels it necessary to introduce and sum up each section before actually getting right to the subject. Maybe if Untermeyer had kept his comments until after each poem, I would have enjoyed it a little better, but it still would have interrupted the flow.
Still, overall a nice collection of Frost's work over the course of his life.
