Likely one of the most well-known poets in American literary history, Robert Frost, born in California, lived much of his life in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, thus, his most popular poetry depicted subtle New England charm. Frost’s style was largely free verse, though he did find a fair amount of structure in poetry could often be inspiring. Forever searching for 'the sound of sense,' Robert Frost's lyrical poetry is eloquent, precise, and robust. The Collected Poems of Robert Frost, includes the inspiring poetry of Frost's first three collections, including his earliest major poems "The Road Not Taken" and "Mending Wall" making this edition one you shouldn't miss!

While he depicts the various stages of Frost's colorful life, Parini also sensitively explores the poet's psyche, showing how he dealt with adversity, family tragedy, and depression.

This new critical volume offers a fresh, multifaceted assessment of Robert Frost's life and works.
