Mister Rogers Poetry Books I was intrigued to learn that Frost and Edward Thomas had met and spent time together in England before the first world war following on from a review of some of Frost's poetry by Thomas I feel both that in some way that the two of these people are now coming together in my understanding is a sign both of the deficiencies in my education and that luckily there is ever to discover about the world I believe The Road not taken was inspired by some of the walks the two went on and that Frost encouraged Thomas to write and publish his own poetry too There is something unnerving about that connection for me perhaps just the sense of how long Frost's adult life was since he was also performing at the inauguration view spoiler there's a lovely Roman word carrying the ideology of an alien world into modern times hide spoiler many of the lyrics as well as the monologues suggest an interior darkness they also have the color and uality of his New England woods being lovely as well as dark and deep commentator Louis Untermeyer on page 264I don't read a lot of poetry but I've been interested in Robert Frost's work ever since first reading both his 'Mending Wall' known for the oft uoted line good fences make good neighbors and 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' referenced by this edition's commentator in my opening uote and remembered for its And miles to go before I sleep conclusion many years ago Also let's not forget that cultured John F Kennedy reuested that the aging poet speak at his '61 presidential inauguration to recite a poem which was a first so Frost has a certain coolness factor ha haThis sturdy paperback is a nice condensed volume that collects over 100 poems from Frost's 60 years 1894 1962 of published writing Nature farming andor rural life in the New England region are usually the main focus I particularly liked the sing song 'Blueberries' and I don't even like eating blueberries the super melancholy 'My November Guest' the autumnal 'After Apple Picking' and also 'The Grindstone' which features the humorous opening Having a wheel and four legs of its own has never availed the cumbersome grindstone to get it anywhere that I can see truth I'm currently working my way through this book which is the standard edition of his collected poetry Should be done some time in 2018 2019 never Frost in 1941I'm abandoning my reading of Frost's poetry Too many other books to get readHaving gotten up through A Witness Tree I'm guessing that I've probably read most of his poems that are still remembered It was a great journey I found out a lot about Frost and the surprising poetry that he wrote through most of his long life A very modern poet even though in the end I get the impression that he is properly classified as a uite regional poet one who in much of his work writes of people and attitudes that are found in American New England that area northeast of New York and even specifically north of Boston Vermont New Hampshire Maine and the northern edge of Massachusetts Below are the nine collections of poetry the book contains the year the collection was published and links to separate reviews

PowerPrevious library review Robert Frost critical reviewsNext library review A Boy's Will see above Lovely poems Frost isn't a favorite poet of mine but he's definitely memorable and brilliant Robert Frost wrote some stunning and thought provoking poems Almost everyone has heard of Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening or The Road Not Taken but one of my all time favorites is Desert Places The last verseThey cannot scare me with their empty spacesBetween stars on stars where no human race isI have it in me so much nearer homeTo scare myself with my own desert places Spent my morning with these trying to find RF's critical assessment of fame how his neighbors come last to recognize him Turns out it's not in the Complete since he was elected Poet Laureate of Vermont where he'd moved from NH forty years before in 1961 at age 85 Year after he recited from memory at JFK's Inauguration Wryly Frost responds On Being Chosen Poet of Vermont Breathes there a bard who isn't moved When he finds his verse is understoodBy his country and his neighborhood And that IS the order friends The Country will recognize you before your neighbors do especially yankees mebbe I found this stunning despite almost five decades of familiarity many of them teaching certain poems like Home Burial and A Servant to Servants and of course property feeling in Stopping by Woods as well as the role of Edward Thomas and England in the universally misunderstood and admired Road not Taken with the most famous aposiopesis in English and American lit and I I took My perusal this morning suggested I had neglected a dozen bird poems I should have noted in my Birdtalk like Never again would Birds' Sounds be the Same Directive about the Phoebes weeping to those not versed in country things Minor Bird possibly about Titmouses or Phoebes and others Then for this Amtrak rider Boston to Colorado six times some poems start from trains A Passing Glimpse Figure in the Doorway and On the Heart's Beginning to Cloud the MindOne a train in Utah And several on wells from the prolog Pasture to For Once then Something And even old shoes A Record Stride In my childhood good fortune I lived on my grandparents Crockett Ridge Maine farm with a board covered spring fed well complete with frog in the pasture across the dirt road now named Ralph Richardson after my Gramp Because it was covered never did have to clean it “I’m going out to clean the pasture spring I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away And stay to watch the water clear I may I won’t be gone long— You come too I’m going out to fetch the little calf Who’s standing by its mother It’s so young It totters when she licks it with her tongue I won’t be gone long—You come too”I never fetched the calf separate from its mother Polly whom I lead with a stick never to hit but to slow her under her neck Polly calved every year and my grandfather a butcher from the town store once named for his family would wait until we boys had left in August to veal the calf Above these subjects looms the writer's flexible ironic undercutting voice and tone still uncommon in American poetry so often elevated sublime the I growing as she speaks And may I say as a lifelong liberal community college teacher supporter of the American Dream and fulfillment thereof I was amused at RF's parodic political satire mostly from the R Rep or Right His Departmental could be a satire on Hillary anthill Death's come to Jerry McCormick Our selfless forager Jerry 372; as could A Roadside Stand be a satire on my whole political and professional life Where they won't have to think for themselves any; While greedy good doers beneficent beasts of prey Swarm over their lives enforcing benefits That are calculated to soothe them out of their wits370 Frost famously conflicted with the Amherst College liberal President Meiklejohn whose policies RF termed at the time Micklejaundice But later in life Frost conceded Meiklejohn was right WellI find Frost's poetry filled with nuggets turns of phrase sometimes parodic turns and especially uick changes in tone rare in any but cummings and Dickinson who lived down the street from where Frost taught in 1919 and whose life overlapped his by eleven years Bill Pritchard's literary biography based on his PhD 24 years earlier is unsurpassed as a poetic reading and it contains a photo of Frost regaling my two great witty Amherst College teachers Baird Shakespeare and Craig My Freshman Comp and an upperclass Seminar on Dickens and James As Chair of English Craig taught my section of daily Freshman English One morning he asked my class staring out the window if any of us saw drumlins out there No one did Craig You can't see them if you don't know the word See RF Drumlin Woodcock Both Baird and Craig endorsed my senior honors thesis on Renaissance prosody and tone directed by the learned and witty Richard Cody I rejoice in having had such teachers but I do wonder at all that I have missed through decades of familiarity As Baird once wrote me of my grad subject Andrew Marvell his To His Coy Mistress' is much better than familiarity suggests I would say this goes for most of Frost though may I add his neighbor down the street of another gender surpasses himand all but one or two poets But both ED and RF expand our New England dialect vocabulary like aftermath for the second mowing Now the Democrats live Frostian they swept the 2018 elections in the House because they embraced Frost I go to school to youth to learn the Future What Fifty Said from West Running Brook 1928The Democrats clearly support Frost's Protestant work ethic as in his first book A Boy's Will on the mower leaving Asclepias Tuberosa wild Butterfly Weed the only flowers for the be 'wildered butterfly trying to find the flowers that were there the day before Frost ends that one Men work together I told him from my heart Whether they work together or apart Now Frost's original Republican sympathies would support work even workers whom Corporate America glories in laying off or replacing with robots whereas arguably the managers could most benefit by robotic computer feedback replacement But I have not heard of a manager making the tough decision to replace himher self By the way I have dozens of Butterfly Weed plants in my backyard beyond the mowed part of the field where it won't grow takes a month peaks near July 4 here in SE Massachusetts For a picturesee my Parodies Lost FB page I think it's this version I have an old copy of this book My grandma gave it to me for Christmas many years ago I love Robert Frost He's my first favorite poet and my favorite poem will always be The Road Not Taken And I I took the road less traveled by and that has made all the difference RF is my reason for loving words I think It's not that I have a favourite Robert Frost poem he's not that kind of fellow Yes there are many uotable uotes that people bandy about; but again he's not that kind of fellow I dip into this collection again and again when I want the world to slow down a little and I just want to dream away a few hours an afternoon These are especially good on snowy blustery mid winter afternoons when there is nothing to do and nowhere to go And in the evening you stop by a wood lovely dark and deep He's the kind of fellow with whom you could have had long interesting conversations whether or not the discourse took you anywhere on that particular day; but to never make the mistake in that conversation of confusing his simplicity of language with simplicity of thought for he is than a considerable speck in the universe and he has allowed me to take many roads in my mind not taken in the physical world This is a well thumbed well loved collection I had read some of his poems like Mending the wall and the snowstorm but not all of them until now I had not realised how great and famous Frost was in his lifetime Now I understand betterI just love and admire his farmland poetry it reminds me of so many things of my own young life in the countryside in Austria though And then he enchants with his deep human knowledge amorous grumpy hopeful or disappointed He sings of trees and flowers and birds and butterflys even ants and insects he knows their songs and sounds their smell and perfumes down to the earth mud and dust His variety of style keeps you reading wthout relent Funny witty clever direct and indirect kreepy and ghostly etc I think that many of his poems could be developed into novels if written out there is so much material and potentialThis is one of the poetry books I will keep on my bedside table like Emily Dickinson Li Po Kippling
