Vor der Rezension: In Klassik Edition stelle ich euch Rezensionen zu etwas anderen Büchern vor. Bücher, die ich vielleicht im Zuge der Uni gelesen habe, vielleicht auch ein bisschen out-of-comfort privat und die eine Rezension wert sind. Ich spreche von Büchern, die viele unter euch als nervige Schullektüre bezeichnen würden. Mit der Ausnahme, dass die Bücher, die ich hier bespreche teilweise auch weg gehen von dem Lektürekanon.

frost is a minor zen master, some work (barring that mention g-d) can be quite insightful

This was one of the first books of poetry I ever owned. His poetry always reminded me of time spent with my father in the corn/tobacco/hay fields when I was a child.
