Read in July, 2011

"Robert Frost - A Life" is one of the best biographies I have read. It addresses, in a very balanced way, the historical facts in Frost's life, the important occurrences, the strong influences on him and his poetry, and his poetry itself--Parini analyzes many of Frost's best poems, but never so as to make this a work of literary criticism as opposed to a complete biography. The book is well-written and never drags. Parini manages to pull together the disparate strands of Frost's highly complex character into a seamless whole.
