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.

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.

You Come Too
A collection of poems selected by Frost himself to be read and enjoyed by all readers, young and old.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The collection of 51 poems provides refreshing glimpses of nature through Frost’s ageless craft and Nason’s complementary wood engravings." --The Horn Book

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
This paperback collection of 50 poems by Robert Frost could be enjoyed by older children, teens and adults. Although not originally written for children, they are appealing to a wide age range and include old favorites like, "Fire and Ice," "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Birches," plus some lesser known works. Most of the poems reflect Frost's deep feelings for nature. Includes title index and an introduction about the author.

    Recommended for all ages, a nice read to start the day

    Classic Frost. Appropriate for all ages from age 8 to adult. Poems were originally selected by Frost himself and published by Holt. Contains most of his best known poems.

    As a longtime fan of Frost (who was fortunate to hear him read selections in 1961), I was struck for the first time by his emphasis on nature. For today's children who are plugged into indoor electric outlets, they may not have the same connection.

    A Poetry Book Worth Reading!

    This is a wonderful book! Some of the poems are alittle deep,but otherwise it was great. It has very descriptive poetry. A lot of nature poems. Very good poetry to visualize. It is worthy of your time.
