Overview

The best-loved poems from one of American literature's most towering figures

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.

In this brilliant selection of Frost's classic poems, students and scholars alike will encounter a body of work central to American culture. 6 illus.]]>

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

I love this poem. In the song,it sounds very sad and depressing,but it's actally a contemlplative work coming from him. His poems used to be intense, but after the WWll, Frost became more interested in literary. He is one of the best poets in the twentieth century. - Swiftstream

As a adult i have written tons of poems. And i would not have done it if it were not for this inspiring poem. It changed my life. And i would make it a must read if i were you. Though you can find it online for free, i would not want to pay 99¿ for a free poem

I was looking for just the poem, but I got Frost's whole life story and all his poems. The road not taken is in the back.
