What People are Saying About This

"One of the strongest books on Frost I've read, Going by Contraries is full of interesting readings of many overlooked poems and full of arguments that place Frost in the tradition of American nature writing more squarely than any previous work has done. Hass is exactly right when he suggests that in the poetry of Frost, a human being is capable of surmounting 'our cosmic loneliness,' reclaiming nature by projecting on it the 'saving structures' that give it meaning.... Hass has written an intellectual history of Frost's poetry, and this has long been needed." -- Jay PariniMiddlebury College, author of Robert Frost: A Life
