This book provides a great insight not only into the collection of poetry of Robert Frost, but also into his developing personality and perspective. Robert starts out very insecure about his poetry and his continued source of inspiration, and then blossoms with confidence by asserting his own personality and views. His last poem and letter both question the meaning of life and affirm his desire to never let life go.

Flinty, moody, plainspoken and deep, Robert Frost was one of America's most popular 20th-century poets. Frost was farming in Derry, New Hampshire when, at the age of 38, he sold the farm, uprooted his family and moved to England, where he devoted himself to his poetry.
