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.

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
