Read full description of the books:
The long awaited comprehensive and authoritative edition. The Poetry of Robert Frost brings together for the first time the full contents of all eleven of Frost's individual books of verse, from A Boy's Will through In the Clearing. More than 350 poems comprise this new volume, scrupulously prepared under the editorship of Edward Connery Lathem, a Frost scholar, Librarian of Dartmouth College, and friend of the poet. Mr. Lathem, in his notes, records extensive bibliographical information about the publication of Robert Frost's poetry during nearly three-quarters of a century -- from 1894, when his first poem appeared in a publication of national circulation, to the final volume the poet worked on just before his death. The editor also carefully traces textual changes that have occurred in the poetry over the years. This handsome volume, the standard edition of Frost's poetry, is a lasting tribute to America's best-loved poet.

Read information about the authorFlinty, moody, plainspoken and deep, Robert Frost was one of America's most popular 20th-century poets. Frost was farming in Derry, New Hampshire when, at the age of 38, he sold the farm, uprooted his family and moved to England, where he devoted himself to his poetry. His first two books of verse, A Boy's Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were immediate successes. In 1915 he returned to the United States and continued to write while living in New Hampshire and then Vermont. His pastoral images of apple trees and stone fences -- along with his solitary, man-of-few-words poetic voice -- helped define the modern image of rural New England. Frost's poems include "Mending Wall" ("Good fences make good neighbors"), "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" ("Whose woods these are I think I know"), and perhaps his most famous work, "The Road Not Taken" ("Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-- / I took the one less traveled by"). Frost was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry four times: in 1924, 1931, 1937 and 1943. He also served as "Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress" from 1958-59; that position was renamed as Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry (or simply Poet Laureate) in 1986.
Frost recited his poem "The Gift Outright" at the 1961 inauguration of John F. Kennedy... Frost attended both Dartmouth College and Harvard, but did not graduate from either school... Frost preferred traditional rhyme and meter in poetry; his famous dismissal of free verse was, "I'd just as soon play tennis with the net down."
