Title: Robert Frost’s Poems
With an Introduction and Commentary by Louis Untermeyer
Length: 275 pages
This book is not just a book full of poems; it is also filled with commentary that gives insight into Frost’s poetry. With me not being a big poetry person, the commentary was really helpful. I didn’t like everything written by Frost that was included in this book; but this book shows the wide range of ability Frost had in crafting poetry in its different forms. What surprised me was that Frost even wrote some fairly creepy poems. Who knew he had some Edgar Allen Poe in him!
Quotes from the Book
“A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought, and the thought has found the words.” Robert Frost (pg. 220)
