Editorial Reviews

Review

"Of all the poetry written in our generation, Frost's is most likely to stand the test of time." --Lewis Gannett

"Of U.S. poets, none has lodged poems more surely where they will be hard to get rid of. . . . His lines often have the trenchancy and inevitability of folk sayings." --Time

"No other American poet has so much art or so much subject matter." --Mark Van Doren

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

About the Author

Beware if you order this Kindle edition. It is NOT the Untermeyer edition as described in the paperback edition description. This Kindle edition contains 5 poems: The Road Not Taken, Birches, An Old Man's Winter Night, A Patch of Old Snow, The Bonfire. The "cover page" of the Kindle edition lists this as a 1916 edition from Henry Holt and Company, New York. I am a new Kindle owner and am discovering that sometimes a link to a Kindle edition is not the same as the paper edition of the book you are looking at on Amazon. At least very true for most of the poetry books I have researched.

Format: Paperback
This is a great compilation from a master poet. Frost experimented with many rhyme patterns and wasn't boxed in by any particular style. His poetry is genuine and authentic. He was relatively economical with his words and could make profound points with a minimum of verbiage. His poetry is accessible and any reader can relate with the themes.

Frost wrote beautiful poems about nature. He made ordinary tasks and events seem enchanting. One can vividly picture a man chopping wood on a snowy day or picking apples in the fall. He also wrote interesting character descriptions with compelling dialogue. Frost contemplated life and death issues, especially a focus on the end of the life cycle. He made profound insights in a subtle way. He was not a preachy moralizer. He had a sense of humor and utilized light-hearted wit.

I thoroughly enjoyed the collection of poems. The commentary by Louis Untermeyer was useful in spots. He provided a good amount of background information that helps the reader understand the context of his writing. Some of his comments were a little extraneous and his ideas are interjected in the text a little too much in my opinion. The great master should have been allowed to speak more on his own with less analysis. Still, it is only a minor criticism and the commentary doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the poetry collection in any significant way.

I am a new owner of a Kindle. I enthusiastically downloaded many of my favorite poems. Among them was the "Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. Having loved the Robert Frost poems, it was also the first I read only to discover that there were only 5 poems there! I was sorely disappointed.

I have another Robert Frost book with all his works in it, so I knew this would be perfect for a man who doesn't like to read. As I told him, "you only have to read one poem at a time." Those of you who know Robert Frost know how wonderful his works are. If you don't know, this is the perfect book to find out. Enjoy.

Beautiful poetry but a bit short: I was hoping for something a bit more inclusive. But still beautiful poetry... .

One of the reasons I write poetry is because of Frost. His name is instantly recognizable to anyone who loves or writes poems.
