This edition includes prints by French and American impressionist and modernist painters that were contemporaries of Frost. A wonderful addition to his imagery.

A helpful reminder to add more poetry to my reading routine.

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
