Robert Frost's poetry was always simple and direct, yet strangely deep. This is the only comprehensive volume of Frost's published verse, including the contents of all eleven of his individual books of poetry -- from A Boy's Will (1913) to In the Clearing (1962).
"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

The old favorites are all here; Fireflies in the Garden, The Road Not Taken, Fire and Ice, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, and a hundred more. In my opinion this is the definitive volume on Frost.
I have always been awed by the number of poems Frost wrote about the stars. A Star on a Stoneboat, The Star Spitter, Stars, Canis Major and many others. Truly Robert Frost is the astronomers poet.
Also in this volume is perhaps my favorite Frost poem, Brown's Descent.
If you love reading Frost on a crispy fall evening, then you'll love reading him when the crickets chirp. You'll need to own this book.
One more good-and-bad point is, the editing. There is no explanation of the poems or the works. This is great in that the work just stands on its own. However however brief, a short biography of Frost could't have been a bad thing. Furthermore, I am sure 1 or two poems could have been explained on a "this was written after x famous event" or "was included in a letter he sent to y" kind of explanation. I don't need extraneous analysis, but some background could have been good.
