Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a useful introduction to one of America's greatest poets." Virginia Quarterly Review

"A 20-page treatment of Frost's metrics and versification is one of the best of its kind... important and highly recommended." CHOICE

"has collected 12 commendable essays on a range of topics...important and highly recommended as a present-day collection for undergraduate, graduate students, and general readers." CHOICE Jan 2002

"Provide[s] fresh persepctives and new insights, which is why scholars nad students alike will find the essays both informative and stimulating." Zeitschrift fuer Anglistik und Amerikanistik

"I was impressed by the evenness of the work, the insightful and incisive quality of the articles, which together amount to a judicious and sensitive treatment of the poet and his poetry. One of the most notable achievements of the essays is the fact that one never forgets in reading through them that Frost was first and foremost a craftsman of verse...I also commend the volume for its dedication to revealing for us the historical Frost...The delicate art of petry and Frost's vital metaphorical imaginiation come alive in the Cambridge Companion, and close attention to the book can make us better readers not only of Frost's poetry but of all poetry." The Robert Frost Review 2002
