The Early Poetry of Robert Frost, Volume I Publisher's Summary

Robert Frost's first book of poetry.

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.

    Robert Frost's second book of poetry. Sometimes puckishly humorous, sometimes elegiac, sometimes terrifying, these poems show the young artist using his new-found voice to explore a world - a village in New Hampshire - that meant everything to him. This volume includes some of his best-known and best-loved works, such as "The Road Not Taken", "Out! Out!", "Birches", and "The Hill-wife". It also includes one of his poem-dramas, "Snow".

    Frost's third book of poetry, North of Boston, is an extraordinary set of poems that are nearly dramas, conversations drawn from the heat of life, love, and death. From "Home Burial" and "Death of the Hired Man" to "A Hundred Collars" and "The Generations of Man", Frost's work in this volume spans the whole range of human experience, expressed always in his characteristic dry, matter-of-fact, yet wonderfully musical verse.
