“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

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.

A very cursory view of a complex poet - not worth the read. The author totally misses the subtle nuances and does little more than paraphrase.Published 21 months ago by Bookworm21
