KLIATTFrom the same editors that brought us Visiting Emily (Dickinson) and Visiting Walt (Whitman), this anthology contains over 100 poems that pay homage to New England's premier poet. Robert Bly, Gwendolyn Brooks, Maxine Kumin, Richard Eberhart, and Richard Wilbur are among the gifted contributors who honor Frost with, for example, poetic recollections of personal encounters with him, reflections at his grave, and remembrances of his appearance at JFK's inauguration. On the lighter side are parodies of some of Frost's most famous poems, such as Wendell Berry's send-up of The Pasture ("Don't come with me/You stay home too"), Kenneth Koch's Mending Sump ("Something there is that doesn't hump a sump"), or Gail White's Traveling with Cats on a Snowy Evening ("I've no idea whose woods these are/But I'm not getting very far/From Albany to NYC/With two cats yowling in my car.") Fans and students of Frost may be inspired to write their own tributes, or at least to revisit the work that won the poet four Pulitzer Prizes. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Univ. of Iowa Press, 180p., Ages 15 to adult.
