Author(s): Edward Connery Lathem
This comprehensive and authoritative edition of Robert Frost's poetry brings together the full contents of all eleven of Frost's books of verse - from A Boy's Will to In the Clearing. This handsome volume, comprising more than 350 poems, was prepared under the editorship of Edward Connery Lathem, a Frost scholar and a friend of the poet. In his notes, Mr Lathem records extensive bibliographical information about the publication of Robert Frost's poetry during nearly three-quarters of a century - from 1894, when his first poem appeared in a national publication, to the final volume Frost worked on just before his death in 1963. The editor also carefully traces textual changes that have occurred in the poetry over the years. Robert Frost was not merely one of America's greatest poets; his voice speaks to all men.
