If you already know and love Robert Frost, you will enjoy this short audiobook/paperback combination of a few of his poems, read by himself.

I found I related much more to certain poems than others.

To hear a poem read by the poet provides a deeper understanding of the poem's voice. This audiobook provides an opportunity to experience each poem as it lives beyond the page.

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. His first two books of verse, A Boy's Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were immediate successes. In 1915 he returned to the...more
