Robert Frost was born in San Francisco, but his family moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts, in 1884 following his father’s death. The move was actually a return, for Frost’s ancestors were originally New Englanders, and Frost became famous for his poetry’s engagement with New England locales, identities, and themes. Over the next eight years, however, he succeeded in having only 13 more poems published.

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.

During his lifetime he received four Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, and his works are still widely anthologized in collections of American poetry and school literature textbooks.

This volume holds more than 350 poems, extensive bigraphical information about Front's nearly three- quarters of a century.

I wonder how long it will be before Frost's literary stock is devalued as much as it deserves to be. These are trite and banal poems that do not ring true or sincere. Frost seems distant from both his poems and the reader. What he has to say is obvious and unoriginal. How he says it is on the level of a hallmark greeting card at its best; at its worst, it is no better than a limerick. Posthumous revelations about his horrific cruelty to others and his shrewd creation/manipulation of his celebrity image as the New England farmer-poet only confirm that there was something seriously wrong with this man and his poems that an earlier generation missed. How earlier generations could find genius in such obvious observations is astounding.
Bad poetry from a twisted man.

Robert Frost was and is America's greatest poet. Excepting, perhaps, W. B. Yeats, he may be the greatest poet to write English in the twentieth century. (To me, it's a toss-up.) To read this volume systematically or desultorily is to become convinced of that. But Frost is, above all, accessible, so the casual reader may not appreciate the difficulty of what he does. Like much of the greatest art his looks easy, even inevitable.
All of Frost's poems are here, plus his two dramatic Masques. When this book first appeared (in 1969) it caused a furor: the editor, it was angrily asserted, presumed too much. He dared to clarify - inserting a hyphen here, excising a comma there. That furor has since died down, as people realize that he did not do away with the sacred texts (any emendation was noted), but simply performed his job as editor. He regularized spelling and the use of single and double quotes (though not Capitalization, which can legitimately be thought of as integral to the poet's expression (think of e.e. cummings!)), and corrected other obvious errors. The notes give the published variants for each poem, so if you wish you may make your own call on some of these finicky issues.
I cannot emphasize enough: BUY THE HARDCOVER! After all, you will be reading this book for the rest of your life. It is a beautifully-built volume, of an easy size and heft for use, with understated appealing typefaces and an exemplary design. Put out by Frost's long-time publisher, this is one of the few essential books of American literature.

My mom always love reading the poems from Robert Frost. But my mom just recently pass away and I wanted a copy of this book for myself. She had a total of seven children and her book could not have been split up so the other six siblings purchase their own. I did't think I could find the book so I put my trust in Amazon.com to find it and they did. I love the ease of shopping on-line and that is the way I usually do my shopping. Great for Birthday, Christmas, and ect. I do most of my Christmas shopping for my grandchildren with Amazon.com I am disabled and it is hard going out shopping so this is a great way to do my shopping. Thanks Amazon.com

Naturally Robert Frost because he's my favorite American poet, especially his masterpiece, The Road Not Taken, also Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and Mending Wall. This book now 'lives' on the living room side shelf.

He averaged only 10 pages of poetry per year, but he stayed at it for 70 years, which is a truly remarkable achievement. And he won 4 Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. There is something for everyone.

I first owned this volume of poetry in 1978. That book simply fell apart after more than 20 years of reading and handling (sometimes roughly by my children). I replace this book with a new one just last year.
The old favorites are all here; Fireflies in the Garden, The Road Not Taken, Fire and Ice, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, and a hundred more. In my opinion this is the definitive volume on Frost.
I have always been awed by the number of poems Frost wrote about the stars. A Star on a Stoneboat, The Star Spitter, Stars, Canis Major and many others. Truly Robert Frost is the astronomers poet.
Also in this volume is perhaps my favorite Frost poem, Brown's Descent.
If you love reading Frost on a crispy fall evening, then you'll love reading him when the crickets chirp. You'll need to own this book.

I was definitely impressed by one of the greatest writers of poetry. Modern poets should read this and take not of somebody who had talent.
The best collection of Robert Frost poems that I have found.
