Book Review
Robert Frost's well-known poem takes on new life in its first picture-book adaptation. The poem--long appreciated for its strong rhythm and evocative images--leaves readers wondering, "Where was the man going on the darkest night of the year?" and "Why on earth did he stop by the woods in a snowstorm?" Artist Susan Jeffers answers these questions visually--the kindly older gentleman who narrates the poem stops his sleigh to feed the forest birds and creatures. He stops once more to visit his daughter and grandchildren, then is off again through a blizzard, with many miles to go before he can sleep. The silent beauty of a snowy night shines through Jeffers's artwork; the man's clothing and blanket are the only bright touches of color in the white and wintry world of the woods. This quiet yet...

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.

"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

Book Review Audiobook Review
Listening to these time-honored poems, it's difficult to imagine the young Frost struggling to find a publisher for his work. In fact, he was nearly 40 (and living in England, of all places) when A Boy's Will, his first collection, appeared. Over the next 50 years he would become the quintessential American poet, securing a well-cushioned catbird seat in the literary canon.

Performers Susan Anspach, Roscoe Lee Browne, and Elliott Gould, among others, heighten the conversational cadences of a writer who seldom strayed from his beloved iambs. Included are "Mending Wall," "The Road Not Taken," "The Death of the Hired Man," "The Fear," and much more, all complete and unabridged. (Running time: 1 hour, 1 cassette) --Martha Silano --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.



Poetry for Young People: Robert Frost

From School Library Journal
Grade 3 Up?Frost satisfies in every way; Dickinson does not. Bolin's four-page introduction describes and explains Emily Dickinson's odd life style and creative productivity. This is followed by 36 poems loosely arranged by the topics of hope, death, and poetry. This organization, however, is not readily apparent; nor is the reasoning behind defining some words (gale, bog, shanties, etc.) and not others (dimity, helmsman, countenance). An index of first lines and little else will help readers searching for poems by subject. The prettily colored watercolors are flat and stylized, and seem better suited to nursery rhymes than Dickinson's insightful and witty glimpses of an entire universe in a blade of grass or of "paradise" gathered by "narrow hands." Frost contains a three-page overview of the poet's life,...

From AudioFile
The experience of listening to a poet read his own work is like no other. The visceral connection between poet and poems is keenly felt, and with a poet like Frost, who reads his own work well, the listener is offered a chance to glean meaning and emphasis possibly missed on a page. Robert Frost's voice is deep and resonant, reflecting age, but also the purposeful choice of words. His rural themes carry the rhythms of Yankee speech, which in his voice accentuate the loneliness and winter bleakness. Hearing Frost's work aloud is not the same experience as silent reading of a page. Editor J.D. McClatchy's excellent notes and accompanying booklet of the poems' text are valuable editions. The option to select the poems from the CD tracks is especially useful. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright...

From Publishers Weekly
Before Arnold, Jack and Tiger, there was Bobby. After winning the Grand Slam of golf in 1930, Jones stood like a colossus over the American sporting scene. He is the only individual to have been recognized with two ticker tape parades down Broadway's Canyon of Heroes. Frost (The Greatest Game Ever Played) has written a swift, surefooted account of Jones's remarkable life and career. From Jones's precocious early days on the Atlanta links to his sudden retreat from the media spotlight, Frost covers every detail. The self-taught Jones began playing serious tournaments at 14 and quickly moved into the ranks of the world's best players. In 1930, he won the four major tournaments of the time: the British Amateur, the British Open, the U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur, which sportswriters dubbed the Grand Slam. Following...

Homage to Robert Frost
Joseph Brodsky
0374525242
Sept 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Joseph Brodsky, Seamus Heaney, and Derek Walcott, Nobel laureates all, have written perceptive, affectionate, admiring essays on Robert Frost. Eschewing both of the prevailing caricatures of Frost (the irascible but beloved cracker-barrel philosopher and the shallow megalomaniac), these writers pay careful attention to the poems themselves. They open doors into the world of words that Frost constructed, and help readers understand the music and the ideas in those worlds. Derek Walcott's dark reading of Frost's much-quoted classic, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," is alone worth the price of Homage to Robert Frost.

While in life Frost (1874-1963) took on the persona of a gentlemen farmer, he emerges from these essays as a far darker and...
