ROBERT FROST by Elizabeth Sergeant


Email this review


Robert Frost is a popular poet with young people. The life of Frost, his economically difficult childhood, his years at Dartmouth and Harvard with their attendant rebellion against the collegiate atmosphere, his program of self education, and his subsequent career as farmer and first poet of America are recorded here. Told with warmth and sensitivity, this is a biography not only of externals but of the intense inner life lived so richly and firmly by the unique New Englander. Students of English literature will find this revealing both in terms of Frost's work and his general attitudes.
