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.

He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech. His work frequently employed settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes. Now close the windows and hush all the fields: If the trees must, let them silently toss; No bird is singing now, and if there is, Be it my loss. It will be long ere the marshes resume, I will be long ere the earliest bird: So close the windows and not hear the wind, But see all wind-stirred.

He stood there bringing March against his thought, And yet too ready to believe the most. Oh, that's the Paradise-in-bloom," I said; And truly it was fair enough for flowers had we but in us to assume in march Such white luxuriance of May for ours.

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.

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.

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference."

This is a book with many different poets, frost is only a small part and not his better work. Mislabeled.

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.
The book arrived in great condition. It was a gift for my granddaughter and she's enjoying it!
