What People are saying about this

William H. Pritchard
“Robert Pack’s book about Frost’s poetry brings to it a lifetime experience of English and American verse. In addition to providing close readings of some of Frost’s best poems, he puts them in challenging literary contexts: considering, for example, the idea of ‘mourning’ in ‘Death of the Hired Man’ and ‘Home Burial’ in relation to poems of Wordsworth, Blake, Hopkins, Dylan Thomas; or bringing out Frost’s poetic distinctiveness by an extended comparison with that of Wallace Stevens. A wise, generous, and passionate account of how and why poetry matters.”
