I went through a rather fanatical Robert Frost phase when I was a college freshman. That year, I devoured four of Frost's first five published collections of poetry: A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, and West-Running Brook.

I was seventeen. I had just moved from a rather nondescript young suburb in the Midwest to the history-saturated city of Boston, Frost's old stomping grounds. I immediately recognized Frost as a quintessential New Englander. I was struck by the strong sense of
The west was getting out of gold,
The breath of air had died of cold,
When shoeing home across the white,
I thought I saw a bird alight.

In summer when I passed the place
I had to stop and lift my face;
A bird with an angelic gift
Was singing in it sweet and swift.

No bird was singing in it now.
A single leaf was on a bough,
And that was all there was to see
In going twice around the tree.

From my advantage on a hill
I judged that such a crystal chill
Was only adding frost to snow
As gilt to gold that wouldn't

This is a collection of poems written early in Robert Frost's career. They cover a wide variety of topics giving something for every reader.
Many of the poems rekindled memories of my childhood--the outdoors and nature.
The way Frost stirs emotions and lets the mind make connections through his literary picture making, makes many of his poems masterpieces.

Being a poet-hopeful from New Hampshire, I take Frost as my arch-enemy. I'll admit some of it's not terrible, and I like the bits that inquire into the poetry of people's conversations, but overall this collection sucks.
John Cleary
Early Frost by Robert Frost was a terrific poetry read. Filled with wonderful prose and insight into the lives of nature and of humanity as a whole. I recommend this book for anyone who likes or loves poetry.

I love Robert frost. His poems are very beautiful, and many of them I remember specific lines of, to this day. One of my favorite poets.

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
