`If you don't know a student doing English A-levels, buy a copy for yourself.' Friends of the Dymock Poets Newsletter, issue 19 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

John F. Kennedy said of Robert Frost: "He has bequeathed his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding." A four-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, Frost created a new poetic language that has a deep and timeless resonance.
In addition to Robert Frost's first three books, this collection includes eighteen early poems that did not appear in his eleven books of poetry and have rarely been reprinted. Some of these express the idealism of youth inspired by heroic figures of the past. Others are love poems to Elinor White, whom he married in 1895.
This book features a deluxe cover, ribbon marker, top stain, and decorative endpapers with a nameplate. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Julie-Anne Dentici "Jewels" said her favorite Frost poem was "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." She neglected to mention that this poem is not included in the book. "Often overlooked," indeed!

This selection of Frost's poetry contains his first three volumes, " A Boy's Will", "North of Boston" " Mountain Interval". It contains some of his most well-known poems, "Mending Wall"," Home Burial", "The Road not taken" "Birches" " The Hired Man" " After Apple Picking".It also contains a brief biographical sketch and survey of the works of this volume by Gail Harvey.

Frost in my own judgment does not quite make it to the top-of-the -top of American poetry, where Whitman, Dickinson and Wallace Stevens stand. But his insistent dialogue with Nature and Life do make for an often harshly beautiful poetry. He often seems to me somehow stronger in mind and will than in human sympathy. But the messages are clear and resound as part of the American heritage in poetry.

" Two roads diverged in a wood,and I-

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference."

Robert Frost graduated from Lawrence high school in Lawrence, Mass. I mention this fact in my Book about growing up in Lawrence "A Summer with Charlie". It was because of this common heritage that I was first lead to Mr. Frost. I must have read his poem about picking apples a thousand times. And since my wife and I also attempted to become "back-to-the-landers" in Mena, Arkansas, his poems about exploring the back forty and laying up a stone wall I also visit frequently. He is very rural. When he began writing poetry America was for the large part farmers - or recently off the farm. He writes a simple small farmer type poetry. This is a nice volume and Robert, like all poets, was a thoughtful man. Robert Frost was famous for a very short poem that is very hard to find. It is not in this volume either.
"Forgive me God for my little joke on thee,
And I will forgive you for your great big one on me."
He had another one, also hard to find, about his visiting heaven and finding God nice but rather inadequate and not very handy.
I don't consider Robert Frost a controversial poet. Any reactionary flavor is very subdued. His poetry is simple, honest and down to earth.

Robert Frost is my favorite American poet. My favorite poem written by him is "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening." This poem is generally overlooked, because people tend to associate "The Road Not Taken" with Frost. Both are great, but "Snowy Evening" is better, I think! For anyone who is a Robert Frost fan, this book is a nice addition to any library, and a nice edition to have.
