Sobre l'autor

Robert Frost, the quintessential poet of New England, was born in San Francisco in 1874. He was educated at Dartmouth College and Harvard University. Although he managed to support himself working solely as a poet for most of his life and holding various posts with a number of universities, as a mostra'n més young man he was employed as a bobbin boy in a mill, a cobbler, a schoolteacher, and a farmer. Frost, whose poetry focuses on natural images of New England, received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry four times for: New Hampshire, Collected Poems, A Further Range, and A Witness Tree. His works are noted for combining characteristics of both romanticism and modernism. He also wrote A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, and The Gift Outright, among others. Frost married Elinor Miriam White in 1895, and they had six children--Elliott, Lesley, Carol, Irma, Marjorie, and Elinor Bettina. He died in Boston in 1963. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

I've taught half a dozen of these poems for forty years, many from memory, first, The Pasture. My Crocket Ridge, Maine, grandparents really had a pasture spring, the cow Polly, and yearly calf--whom Polly defended from the dog Jerome by lifting my brother, in front of the dog, over the stone wall. The spring had great water, down a couple feet, and of course a frog living there. The Tuft of Flowers (the mower spared) I have growing in my back yard, in fact a dozen of them: orange Butterfly Weed, Asclepias Tuberosa. (Perhaps only Pritchard's edition keeps the line, "Finding them Butterfly Weed when I came" after "I left my place to know them by their name.") Speaking of Pritchard, Frost was his interlocutor, and a presence at my undergrad Amherst College. (I published a poem, After the Fall, on JFK and my teacher MacLeish dedicating the Frost Library a month before Dallas. My first poem in that publication, Ars Docentis, compares leading cows like Polly and leading classes: on heifers, "They.. attack afraid/ And retreat feeling real brave. There's/ No understanding them…)
By memory, The Road Not Taken, which every reader, every student, thinks describes their life--that remarkable, emphatic use of line end as conversational pause in colloquial repetition: "I--/ I took the one less travelled by…." Such a New England poem, yet written in England, perhaps recalling NE.
Lots of my Frost teaching was aloudreading in class: say, Home Burial. One student, narrator, I the husband, another student, the wife despising the husband, who says a remarkable line, the reason I grabbed the part: "What was it brought you up to think it the thing/ To take your mother-loss…"
"What was it" does not sound like a pentameter, but it is with one extra syllable on the last foot.
Or aloudreading, because my students were 2/3 women, average age mid-twenties, A Servant to Servants, where students read it all--a woman driven crazy by housing her mad brother-in-law, but mostly by servitude, though living with great views. Driving in N NH I think of her Lake Willoughby: "There's more to it than just window-views/ And living by a lake." I think that in my hometown too, all the ocean-views. (No more to it?) The best definition of "housework" in all lit: "doing/ Things over and over that just won't stay done."
"Death of the Hired Man" features a farm couple, Warren and Mary, and the independent old hired man Silas, who often left at haying time. I know about that, from my Gramp's 40 acre farm on Crockett ridge, where I drove his Model B tractor pulling a mower or hay rake. (The road's now named for Gramp, ralph richardson road.) Silas has aged, but has a plan to "ditch the meadow." Mary says Warren must accept Silas at his word,
"He's come to help you ditch the meadow.
He has a plan. You musn't laugh at him"
Why? We learn, Death with Dignity.
By the way, best definitions of "home" in this poem: Warren,
"Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
They have to take you in."
"I should have called it
Something you somehow haven't to deserve." Mary answers (82)

In his penultimate poem, "The Wood-Pile," Frost again takes a walk, in winter snow,
"I was just far from home.
A small bird flew before me. He was careful
To put a tree between us when he lighted." (156)
Brought to mind Emerson's poem "To a Titmouse [Chickadee]" where he's in a blizzard, 3 miles from
home, saved by a Chickadee, "this scrap of valor" whose tune says, like Caesar, "Ve-ni Vi-di Vi-ci."
See the Addendum to my new book, "Conversations with Birds: the Metaphysics of Bird and Human Communication."

Some of these he wrote in high school, like "My Butterfly" age 18, even then fine lines like the butterfly's "airy dalliance" and "the soft mist/ of my regret"(68)

Even one of the lesser (earlier?) poems, the sonnet Vantage Point, tells how "tired of trees, I seek again mankind" so he walks at dawn to a hill where "cattle keep the lawn" and he can see far off white homes of men, then farther, a hill of burial; "living or dead" his choices. By noon, too much of these, he has "but to turn on my arm," and "lo, my breathing shakes the bluet like a breeze," he smells the earth and plant,:"I look into the crater of the ant" (48). Great last line: Frost a fine critic of his own writing, puts his best line last.

Use all your senses--not just your eyes--when you read Robert Frost's remarkable poems. Your own world will quickly melt away as Frost draws you into winter wonderlands, forests, and fields. More than twenty-five of the Pulitzer-Prize winner's best-loved poems are included, along with stunning illustrations, in this introduction to the work of one of America's greatest poets.

I love the Everyman's Library Pocket Poets Edition books. These little books are packed with poems, from the Author(s). I have read some several times. I have even used them to teach about poetry and the works of the certain author. Nice add to any library.
