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
