The Road Not Taken

A Selection of Robert Frost's Poems

Robert Frost; With an Introduction and Commentary by Louis Untermeyer; Illustrations by John O'Hara Cosgrave II

Holt Paperbacks

The Road Not Taken offers a far-ranging selection of the best and most-beloved poems of Robert Frost. Perhaps the most widely studied and appreciated (and certainly the most famous) of all modern American poets, Frost crafted a rich, vast, and familiar-yet-new landscape in his verse that each succeeeding generation of readers has come to know and love. "Of U.S. poets, none had lodged poems more surely where they will be hard to get of," as Time has noted. "His lines often have the trenchancy and inevitability of folk sayings."

With Louis Untermeyer's biographical introduction and an ongoing commentary that touches upon each poem presented here, this choice of Frost's work gives context to both the life and work of a titan of American literature. Clearly annotated and carefully arranged, The Road Not Taken is also an ideal introduction to this timeless, vitally important poetry.
