What People are Saying About This

David Cowart

Although this study will almost certainly take its place as one of the truly essential books on Frost, it is also something larger: a superb account of literary politics in the modernist period. David Cowart, author of Literary Symbiosis: The Reconfigured Text in Twentieth-Century Writing

William Pritchard

An original, daring, deeply committed work that tells us much about Frost's art and the motives behind and embodied in it.
— William H. Pritchard, Henry Clay Folger Professor of English, Amherst College
