Overview

A feast for lovers of American literature — the work of our greatest poet, redesigned and relaunched for a new generation of readers.

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.

The only comprehensive volume of Frost's verse available, comprising all eleven volumes of his poems, this collection has been the standard Frost compendium since its first publication in 1969.

Robert Frost is commonly regarded as America's greatest poet. Among his many honors are four Pulitzer Prizes and an appointment as Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress. He died in 1963.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One would think that Poe's work would translate perfectly into dramatic interpretations, and certainly the first volume reviewed here works extremely well, but by the second tape, where poems are admittedly written from dreams, you realize how easily a poor reader can overdramatize poems best read quietly, if read at all. None of this is helped by the intent of New Millennium to gather as many readers as possible (Michael York, David Warner, among others) and inadvertently break up the unity of a poet's voice. Whitman fares no better, with the editors electing to present snippets here and there, out of context, and supplying no context, with performances by Joan Allen, Burt Reynolds, and others. Only Frost's poems seem well presented (there are 11 different readers, including Elliott Gould, Melissa Manchester, and Alfre Woodard), but he's also the poet whose work is best relayed in short poems from different periods in his career. The programs are recommended for comprehensive audio collections only, although readers such as Joel Grey, Gregory Hines, and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. might make these attractive to theater buffs. Individual poems are not listed on the packaging of the Poe and Frost tapes, where readers are listed en masse, giving no indication as who reads what.

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

    Robert Frost's Collection of Poems Review

    This collection of poems by Robert Frost is now one of my favorite poetry books. His poems are extremely well written and always interesting. This book has captured many of his best poems and I always look forward to reading them again and again. Anybody who likes thoughtful poems and creative imagination would surely love this amazing writer. This book is great for ages 13 and up because of its imaginative content and wonderful metaphors. All the greatest aspects of poetry are combined in almost each and every one of Frost's poems. Poetry was never really my favorite reading choice but after a friend pointed out this author to me, I started reading more poetry than just Shel Silverstein. I believe that anybody who likes good poetry should try this book and will probably not be dissapointed.

    Robert Frost... not since high school

    I graduated high school way to many years ago. It was a time when reading Robert Frost was required, not something I would have done on my own. Having said that I am so grateful that the reading of his works was mandatory as I might not have come to know his articulate painting with words.
    This is a great collection of Robert Frosts work and is a worthy addition to any library. I assure you there is something for everyone in this collection.
    Purchase a copy and escape into the mind of the poet. It is a wonderful place to visit when all else around us is in such chaos.
