This comprehensive and authoritative edition of Robert Frost's poetry brings together the full contents of all eleven of Frost's books of verse - from A Boy's Will to In the Clearing.
This handsome volume, comprising more than 350 poems, was prepared under the editorship of Edward Connery Lathem, a Frost scholar and friend of the poet. In his notes, Mr Lathem records extensive bibliographical information about the publication of Robert Frost's poetry during nearly three-quarters of a century - from 1894, when his first poem appeared in a national publication, to the final volume Frost worked on just before his death in 1963. The editor also carefully traces textual changes that have occurred in the poetry over the years.
Robert Frost was not merely one of America's greatest poets; his voice speaks to all men.Biographie de l'auteur :
Robert Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874. After the death of his father he moved with his mother and sister to Massachusetts. His first collection, A Boy's Will, was published in 1913. In 1924 he won the first of four Pulitzer Prizes for his fourth book, New Hampshire. In the 1930s, as he became ever more revered, he suffered a series of family tragedies: his youngest child Marjorie died in 1934, his wife Elinor in 1938, and his son Carol in 1940. Another daughter, Irma, suffered from mental illness. Frost's last major collection, A Witness Tree (1942), contains a number of poems reflecting these disasters. In 1957 Robert Frost received honorary degrees from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. He died in January 1963.
