    One thought on “Robert Frost's Poems”

    1. 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 better.I 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 in [...]

    2. I was impressed by the wide range of topics Frost wrote poems about. Some of the poems read like short stories; one of them had a Poe feel to it.In all honesty, I bought this poetry collection solely for The Road Not Taken, but there were quite a lot of good poems in this one.

    3. It is something of a paradox that Frost, our most well-known poet, is also our most underrated poet. His over-familiarity has given a false image of him; people think he wrote Hallmark cards. Reading his poetry closely is a fascinating education. He is one of the darkest, most illusive American writers in some moods; in others, he is cynical and enigmatic. If you appreciate poetry, read Frost. If all you know is "The Road Not Taken" and you think Frost is an artless hack writing verse to be fram [...]

    4. New Enlarged Pocket Anthology of Robert Frost’s Poems: With an Introduction and Commentary by Louis Untermeyer. Pocket Books: 1971 (29th printing):My first introduction to Robert Frost came in high school, specifically “The Road Not Taken” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” These are his two most famous poems and probably most people have some familiarity with them. I like them and both spoke to me. I wouldn’t say they inspired me or influenced my own poetry, which developed [...]

    6. Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claimBecause it was grassy and wanted wear;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I [...]

    7. Is Robert Frost my favorite poet ever? Possibly, yes, he very well could be. This collection of Frost poems has me pulling it off the shelf every time I need a friend. It doesn't matter what he writes about, it is always welcoming and approachable. He's got that intrigue in his words that never lets go. He always has some wisdom to share, and he makes me feel like he cares about those who are reading his poems.

    8. This little piece of Wild Grapes made the entire read worthwhile for me: " I had not taken the first step in knowledge; I had not learned to let go with the hands, as still I have not learned to with the heart, and have no wish to with the heart - nor need, that I can see. The mind - is not the heart. I may yet live, as I know others live, to wish in vain to let go with the mind - of cares, at night, to sleep; but nothing tells me that I need learn to let go with the heart."

    9. As my last review was my first of a collection of short stories, this review will be my first of a collection of poetry. During the Spring of 2015—my last semester at Anoka-Ramsey Community College—I took a poetry course with the hopes of becoming more open and appreciative to it. I'm much more of a prose man, as all of my own ambitions are in that form. In the end, I was glad I took it. I learned how to carefully read poetry, and what things to pay attention to. I also learned something tha [...]

    10. I have to give Robert Frost his due as one of America's iconic poets, but overall his poetry is difficult for me to get into. I do admire the breadth of his writing, though, and there were many delightful verses scattered throughout this collection that I could not help but underline. And of course The Road Not Taken remains a classic, I don't care who you are.

    11. There's a reason this man is considered the greatest American poet to ever live. I can't even give anyone a proper explanation of why this is such a great book. Read it and find out.

    12. 4⭐️. “The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promised to keep, and miles to go before I sleep l, and miles to go before I sleep.”I bought this book as something to read Margot while she was in the womb, and when she used to sit still. (But I had never made a full pass straight through). Law school ruined my ability to read poems, as it taught me to only read quickly and for facts. So this one was tough for me. I had to read and reread many times. And Frost (or the editor) has an [...]

    13. Robert Frost offered the United States a taste of something new, yet something old. By combining traditional forms in poetry and modern techniques, Robert Frost became a leading figure of the modernist movement. His told stories behind beautiful words, appealing to people seeking poetry they could grasp, yet still feel comforted by what they knew poetry to be: traditional. Robert Frost was a part of a modern world, but the importance of traditional form lingered throughout his work. First off, F [...]

    14. I originally got in to Robert Frost via his poem Fire and Ice, which is a supposition piece of how the world is going to end. Since I enjoyed that poem so much I bought a collection of his poems on sale at the local bookstore. This book is a collection of everything from his most famous, to his most obscure poems and all the works in between. This book, I have found, is such a wonderful mentor text for teaching visualization, how to craft a setting and asking questions. As a teacher always looki [...]

    15. 2.5 starsEveryone knows the most famous Shakespeare plays and sonnets, but reading beyond those famous pieces lends a greater appreciation for him. Everyone knows the most famous Beatles' singles, but listening to the deeper cuts demonstrates the totality of their continued influence. Everyone knows the most famous van Gogh paintings, but viewing his lesser known works gives a fuller understanding of the artist. This, I hoped, would be the case with me and Robert Frost: that I would come to enjo [...]

    16. *You can also read this review and some other here at my website too.*One word- Awesome. I am not much of a poetry person and very rarely I like them. But I must say Robert Frost is completely different. Each of the poem seem to represent more than it meets the eye. Poems like "The Road Not Taken", "Out, Out-", "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" are simply epic. These poems show grave philosophies of life with subtle hints and deceptively simple lines. For anyone who likes to read, specially [...]

    17. I own a 1946 edition of this book that I have carried with me around the country and world. It is falling apart now, but it is one of my favorite possessions.Where had I heard this wind beforeChange like this to a deeper roar?What would it take my standing there for,Holding open a restive door,Looking down hill to a frothy shore?Summer was past and day was past.Sombre clouds in the west were massed.Out on the porch's sagging floor,Leaves got up in a coil and hissed,Blindly struck at my knee and [...]

    18. Besides Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, and Emily Dickinson, I must say Robert Frost is up there in the top five of my most favorite poetry. The reason for this is that his work, his poetry to be exact, is so specific to each topic that it is about. Be it love, isolation, decisions, or whatever else, Frost finds a way to make each of his poems very specific to the case at hand. There are no other distractions except the narrator and the narrator's focus. For example, in Frost's "Love and a Questio [...]

    19. I've been familiar with Frost's poetry--I've read or sung a good bit of it from High School to Randall Thompson's setting of Frost's poetry to music, Frostiana.In a seminar class we read "Home Burial". The professor shared that of all the poetry Frost wrote and read aloud to audiences, "Home Burial" was one that was too personal to share publicly. Having looked more in depth at the poem, I too was struck by the insight and economy. As a pastor, this poem captures the struggle every married coupl [...]

    20. First off: Robert frosts poetry stands for itself - but the thing with this specific edition is, that foreword and annotations as well feel like written by a very shallow person who completely takes hold on what the reader should think.Also, the formatting makes me throw up. Splitting 'stopping by woods' onto two pages, even having to flip to the next page. Awful

    21. Although I am partial to the more melancholy poems, I did appreciate the humor as well. I must say that I thought there was too much commentary in the edition I read, so I skipped most of it and just read the poems. I don't want to be told the "meaning" of each poem, I prefer to form my own response.

    22. I so so so loved this one.When I decided to buy this, I only new a few poems of R. Frost and I was pleasently surprised to discover that I enjoyed most of them very much.The use of so many different topics was amazing, Frost took a regular and simple thing and made it into a magnificent poem.Thumbs up for this book! I will sure be reading some more of this author.

    23. The commentary in this was sometimes bizarre. I felt like the commentator was almost sticking up for Frost, as though people were attacking him. I didn't really think Frost needed defending as a great poet. All in all, however, I loved reading a lot of lesser known poems and learning a bit about Frost's life and poetry at the same time.

    24. There is much more to Frost than "The Road Not Taken". His poems aren't quaint little New England country roads. They are intricate superhighways branching out into questions and dilemmas. Like Hemingway, he doesn't have to use erudite words or abstruse ideas to hit you where it hurts.

    25. This anthology covers most of Frost's major works of literature, especially "The Road Not Taken" and "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening".

    26. I love poetry, but I don't really like Frost's poems :( However, there are exceptions: I LOVE "Fire and Ice", and I quite enjoyed "A Lone Striker" and "Revelation" as well :D

    27. Robert Frost Poems and lyrics captivates his readers attention with his simple vocabulary and sharp observation. His style is turning usually forgotten thoughts into unforgettable phrases. In A Boy's Will, his word's were exuberant. North of Boston is poetry that talks and has its own voice. Frost has a deep understanding of human conditions . His words and classic verses burns and touches our hearts and leaves us with a lasting impression. Frost vivid observation and rich enjoyment of all kinds [...]
