Overview

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
"
These deceptively simple lines from the title poem of this collection suggest Robert Frost at his most representative: the language is simple, clear and colloquial, yet dense with meaning and wider significance. Drawing upon everyday incidents, common situations and rural imagery, Frost fashioned poetry of great lyrical beauty and potent symbolism. Now a selection of the best of his early works is available in this volume, originally published in 1916 under the title Mountain Interval. Included are many moving and expressive poems: "An Old Man's Winter Night," "In the Home Stretch," "Meeting and Passing," "Putting In the Seed," "A Time to Talk," "The Hill Wife," "The Exposed Nest," "The Sound of Trees" and more. All are reprinted here complete and unabridged. Includes a selection from the Common Core State Standards Initiative: "The Road Not Taken."

    Wonderful

    This volume is small but power-packed with Frost's writings, which he refers to as 'interval'. He uses rural imagery to make sense of life. While the beautiful 'Road Not Taken' keynotes the volume, other poems, such as 'Birches' also delights. He's in touch with his childhood, the simplest of times, and uses these times and thoughts to explain adult concerns. These poems are lucid thoughts of someone who has taken the time to observe the details of living.

    Really good book!

    I love reading poetry and i write poetry myself. And Robert Frost is a big romodel for me and I hope some day my poetry can be as prestigious as his.This book was one of my favorites and my favorite poem is The Road Not Taken. But this book was great,I really liked it and i will highly reccomend it! I also recommend Seasons by Robert Frost because it had great poems just like this book but it had fabulous photographs.

    No Home Library Should Be Without this Book...

    As no poet compares to Robert Frost,no anthology can as inexpensively add delight to your home library.
