Frost weaves together themes of innocence and experience, love and joy and pain, in a sequence of poems that relate to each other while also standing alone as vivid, fresh expressions of intense feeling that speak as freshly today as they did when they were written. This volume includes some of his best-known and best-loved works, such as "Wind and Window Flower", "Love and a Question", "Storm Fear", and "October". As we move from poem to poem, it is fascinating to hear a young master discovering his voice.
Having purchased a two cassette audio book of Robert Frost reading his own poetry some years ago, I had hoped that this purchase would obviate the need the laborious task of having to transfer them into digital format for the computer and my various MP3 players and entertainment tablet. Unfortunately, I can only say that the person reading Frost's poetry in this audio book, though with perfect diction, lacked any feel for or understanding of the poems he was reading. While it may be a bit unfair to compare the reader to the poet himself, nevertheless his performance was disappointing and now I'm reconciled to having to transfer the audio cassettes to digital format--very disappointing.
