Praise for Homage to Robert Frost

"I closed the book delighted and grateful and amazed by how wide the net cast by literature is, how deeply lasting and transforming poetry can be, how many interpretations there can be of a thing that is well-made and honest, and what a pure, telescopic activity writing poetry is."--Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review

"The particular usefulness of this attractive triptych is that the non-native perspectives it offers cast fresh light on an elusive American poet . . . Brodsky, Heaney, and Walcott scrape off the encrusted grime of superficial opinions to uncover Frost's originality and strength. Incidentally, the book is graced by marvelously telling photographic images of Frost at the start of each essay."--Phoebe Pettingell, The New Leader

"Certainly no poet could ask for better critics than these three Nobel laureates.. . . These pieces are criticism as an art form, and a superb invitation to explore the work of a great American poet."--Publishers Weekly
