About the Book

Based on the arrangement of The Poetry of Robert Frost(1969), Part One of this work attempts to identify Frost’s intentions by placing each poem in the biographical, historical and geographical context of his life. It further examines conscious and unconscious points of association, annotates words and phrases, and provides, when possible, a date of composition along with the place of publication. Part Two consists of an annotated bibliography of poems published during Frost’s life but uncollected at the time of his death and those published posthumously or yet collected.
