Description

Robert Frost was born in San Francisco, but his family moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts, in. .West-Running Brook (1928), Frost’s fifth book of poems, is divided into six sections, one of which is taken up entirely by the title poem.

Robert Frost was born in San Francisco, but his family moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts, in 1884 following his father’s death. This poem refers to a brook which perversely flows west instead of east to the Atlantic like all other brooks. A comparison is set up between the brook and the poem’s speaker who trusts himself to go by contraries ; further rebellious elements exemplified by the brook give expression to an eccentric individualism, Frost’s stoic theme of resistance and self-realization.

He stood there bringing March against his thought, And yet too ready to believe the most. Oh, that's the Paradise-in-bloom," I said; And truly it was fair enough for flowers had we but in us to assume in march Such white luxuriance of May for ours.

I work with high school girls who have severe learning disabilities including social and emotional problems. One such student was having boundary issues, so I got a text off of the internet of Robert Frost's The Mending Wall with the famous line, "Good fences make good neighbors." We read the whole poem and discussed it as a lesson on keeping one's boundaries and respecting those of others. She learned a difficult lesson about boundaries very well from this poem, and has begun to act differently as she generalizes what she learned. Well, this student fell in love with Robert Frost's poetry when I got a second poem off the internet. He was a wise man who put things in very interesting ways. As a gift, I bought her this volume of Frost's poetry, and she absolutely L-O-V-E-S it!!!! We pick out a poem each day and go through it to learn what we can from Frost about his outlook on that which surrounded him. My student, not usually very good at writing, has begun to write poetry using Frost as a model; she is trying to express things and ideas in colors as she read in one of the poems in this beautiful book that discusses the background of each poem, or sets of poems throughout the book in a thoroughly engaging manner. My student loves this book so much that she asked me to write an inscription on the inside of it for her, which I was only too happy to comply with as I love my students dearly. This is magnificent poetry at Frost's very best and a volume not to be missed.

You probably ready "The Road Not Taken" in high school. It's a bit of reading list cliché, but the reason behind that is very good: Frost's poetry is widely accessible. It has amazing imagery and the man can string a sentence together to make words actually beautiful, but he doesn't let poetic form obscure meaning. You can easily follow the narrative of the poem and philosophical questions he poses are pretty well on the surface of every poem. But it's still a pleasure to read and ponder.

And "The Road Not Taken," while beautiful and poignant throughout a person's life, is not at all his only worthwhile piece. I come back to "Mending Wall" again and again in my head, thinking about the line questioning whether good walls make good neighbors. It's especially poignant in these days of border policy debate. Another line that pops into my head often is "nothing gold can stay." It's a beautiful line talking about the transitive nature of the season, alluding of course to the season of our lives. I hear it in my head frequently and I think it's my mind reminding me that I need I need to be in the moment appreciating what I have. It's a great line among many in Frost's works.

Good little book if you need it. I needed this book for an essay I was writing in college. I needed something with commentary to argue my point. If you are looking for commentary for an essay, wanting a different perspective on the poems of Robert Frost, or just want to learn more about the poem in the first place this is for you. It is a pocket size book with readable text. the commentary is good and informative for what I needed it for. Well made and has a lot of poems so hope this helps.

A beautiful collection of a "real" poet. Nice size edition with print large enough that I don't need my reading glasses. Most of his best poems. Even my son appreciated the copy I picked up for him. Some works are timeless and this is one!

I had a copy of this. May have belonged to my Grandmother. I gave it to my daughter when she moved away. I was looking for the exact same book and found it. I really love the poetry of Robert Frost. The one called ,"Canis Major" is my favorite.

This book is a great purchase. It contains a good bulk of Frost's work. Trust me the poems you love are in this book. Each poem gets a brief introduction by a scholar familiar with the work. This really adds to quality of the reader's experience. Anyone who appreciates Frost should buy this book. It is compact and easy to bring along anywhere.

I love this little book and keep it close on my bed stand for times I need to reflect. The size of the book (6 3/4" x 4 1/4") allows me to carry it easily in my purse and the book is bound well which ensure endurance. On another note, this book also includes the poem "A Hillside Thaw" which is a personal favorite. Many other Robert Frost poetry books I have looked at do not include this poem. I definitely recommend the book!
I always admired Mr. Frost's poetry, and met him in 1961 while I was in college at Amherst, Mass. I have an old worn, and tattered version of this book from that era that I replaced with this one. Some consider Mr. Frost to be a New England poet, but many people have now discovered in his poetry universal themes crafted for expression by the persona of a Yankee farmer, a profession by the way that Mr. Frost never suceeded in despite the fact that he owned several farms during his lifetime. He was also greatly admired in England where he lived for a time.
This is a great book to have that covers many of major works.
