This handy and affordable collection, a longtime bestseller, contains all of Frost’s best-known poems—and many others. Here are “Birches,” “Mending Wall,” “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “Two Tramps at Mud Time,” “Choose Something Like a Star,” and “The Gift Outright” (which Frost read at the inauguration of JFK).

The volume contains over 100 poems, with ample selections from every phase of Frost’s long and varied career. Robert Frost's Poems grants us an informed celebration of New England’s countryside, an appreciation of common people (especially their grace, candor, and wisdom), an ongoing encounter with life’s predicaments and truths, and a rich self-portrait of the great American poet who “had a lover’s quarrel with the world.”
