Book Description

April 1 2002
A feast for lovers of American literature-the work of our greatest poet, redesigned and relaunched for a new generation of readers

No poet is more emblematically American than Robert Frost. From "The Road Not Taken" to "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," he refined and even defined our sense of what poetry is and what it can do. T. S. Eliot judged him "the most eminent, the most distinguished Anglo-American poet now living," and he is the only writer in history to have been awarded four Pulitzer Prizes.

Henry Holt is proud to announce the republication of four editions of Frost's most beloved work for a new generation of poets and readers.

The only comprehensive volume of Frost's verse available, comprising all eleven volumes of his poems, this collection has been the standard Frost compendium since its first publication in 1969.

Product Description

From Library Journal

Debuting in 1969, 1972, and 1959, respectively, these three volumes offer a massive collection of Frost's work, with a little bit of overlap. The Reader additionally includes essays, interviews, and numerous samplings of Frost's other writings. If you find yourself even slightly Frost-free, this trio will put you right.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting Tribute to America�s Greatest Poet Feb. 13 2003
Format:Paperback
Robert Frost has been one of my favorite poets since I watched him attempt to read a poem on a sunny, crisp morning at John F. Kennedy's Presidential Inauguration.
Although I have only owned this book for only a few months, it is already littered with Post-it notes marking the location of my favorite poems. I am told this is the only comprehensive volume of Frost's 11 published books. Edward Lathem, a Frost scholar and editor of this volume, includes bibliographical information on the poems' publication and specifies the textual changes Frost made over the years.
Although I have decades of exposure to Frost's work, I inevitably find a new nuance or thought as I thumb through this volume's pages. It is a fitting tribute to a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner and a man I consider the United States' greatest poet.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Collection of Frost's Poems Nov. 22 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book, reputedly, contains every published poem by Robert Frost, from each of his eleven books. As such, it is the ultimate collection of Frost's poetry now in print.
If you are a Frost enthusiast, or if you like poetry about life in rural New England, you need this book.
Also intresting are the endnotes, which track editorial changes Frost made in each of his poems through the years.
This is a great book to read while sitting in front of the fireplace on a cold winter night; or while sitting in the woods on a nippy autumn day taking in the colors of fall.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Companion July 29 2003
By M. King
Format:Paperback
Robert Frost's poetry has accompanied me on many a journey throughout my life. He has helped to comfort me in times of sadness and disappointment. He has lifted my spirits as I walk through the woods with him traveling down that road less taken. He has allowed me to escape steamy hot summer nights into a snowy wood, refreshing my mind with the pictures he poetically presents. This volume of poetry has been a friend wherever my life has taken me and I highly reccomend it to any lover of Frost and anyone who enjoys a warm companion on their own life's journey.

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Want To Know Frost ,This Book Will Suffice July 27 2011
By Richard Dicanio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Since reading" Stopping By Woods" back in high school I've always had an affinity for Robert Frost.The Pulitzer Prize winning author had written much more than that which kept gnawing at me over the years to want to always read more of him. This book is a pretty complete collection of his work and representative of his lifetime of struggle and depression as the poor man had a horrible life. Too much death and loss for anyone to deal with. Now I know why his work took the shape that it did. Not that it was morbidly preoccupied but you get the faint hint of melancholy in much of his poetry.His personal struggle to understand and put things in perspective weighed heavily in his works and he appeared to take comfort in things that would not leave him so suddenly and forever.This book is full of trees, plants, sky and stars,fences and fields,homes, both spooky and comfortable,smart folks, dumb folks,dead folks,rocks,local history and American history.All of it is here and you need not go further unless you are a doctoral student.It includes the work he did for John F. Kennedy's inauguration which the poor man couldn't read because of sun glare.It is a wonderful work and will always be associated with the beginning of Camelot.True, some works were not as entertaining or well done but I can count dozens contained in this book which I have added to my favorites aside from his better known works.There are other books out there but for the common reader, the person who wants a nearly complete collection of a mans works then this collection of Frost will do just fine.Poetry is a very personal thing and to judge a writer based on how I feel is both wrong and unkind. The same piece can affect two people in such radically different ways that to foist an opinion would be criminal unless one is asked. No one is asking so all I can do is tell you that if you are looking for a solid collection to give you a good look at Frost and his works then this book is for you.Buy it, you won't need much else and you will have enough Frost for a lifetime,quite practically all of it and then you can judge for yourself just how good he was.
