    " As a child I learned 'the road not taken' by heart. I love his wording, and description. I cannot enjoy the fall or the country without thinking of Robert Frost. My fav would have to be 'Stopping by woods on a snowy evening' "...miles to go before I sleep" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate S | 1/28/2014

    " Page 385 The Fear of God "

    " One of my favorite compilations ever. Frost is a genius. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaime | 1/21/2014

    " I enjoyed rereading the classic poems of Robert Frost. This a comprehensive collection with an insightful forward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 12/29/2013

    " Well, how can it not be 5 stars? It's Robert Frost. I'm sure anyone will find some of the work a bit on the odd side, as there is just so much of it, but the joy of Frost is that the more one reads him, the richer so many of the poems are. Perhaps that has to do with getting older, too. I even like the play about Job, though it's one I find pretty odd, myself. Frost tackles many issues in these poems that are surprisingly contemporary. It's not all those eerily similar divergent roads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor Mullane | 12/27/2013

    " I really enjoyed these poems. I grew up reading robert frost and I have always enjoyed his classic way of writing poems. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shavonne | 12/17/2013

    " I loved the poems The Road Not Taken and Fire and Ice. When you read him you see that his poems have higger meaning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dean Madonia | 12/10/2013

    " "The Road Not Taken," and "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening," are two of my favorite poems by any poet. "Road," is the only poem I have memorized and I have used it as a compass for my life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kent | 12/4/2013

    " Perhaps I am just not a poetry guy. I enjoyed very few of this collection. I liked only slightly more than that, and actually understood only a few more than that number. The most understood poems, and seemingly the very few that communicated purpose and meaning to me, happen to include the three or four that other reviewers list as their favorites, and I suppose they were mine also. Beyond those, Frost's work leaves me wondering why all the fuss. My apologies to the throng of "Frost Lovers" everywhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nena | 12/4/2013

    " His poetry has so many levels! Love his writting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 11/7/2013

    " This book is a treasured possession, having once belonged to my Dad, who died when I was 11. Wonderful poetry I keep coming back to for a lifetime of insights... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denisse | 8/20/2013

    " I'm not a big poetry fan so this was blah to me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Kreager | 6/29/2013

    " I think everyone can find a single poet that speaks to their soul and for me Robert Frost has an insight that I truly appreciate. I could the whole day reading his work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Tuley | 6/21/2013

    " What's not to like about Robert Frost? He's still a quietly essential American poet. I lack his New England sensibility, but I fully admire his enormous talent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 1/5/2013

    " From studying Frost in high school, all I knew was that he was a master of iambic pentameter. Now, having put some actual study into his works, I think he is pretty amazing in other ways as well. His poetry can be fun and serious, but is always realistic and in the modern. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ki | 10/2/2012

    " I love his imagery and enjoy his work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noorin Hasan | 5/12/2012

    " If I were to chose a poet who impacted my day to day life, it would be him for I live by the "The Road not Taken" and "A Time to Talk". Spectacular content , sensational scenes brought to life by nothing but the power of words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 jacob | 9/16/2011

    " I was only really able to appreciate poetry when I found a poet I could connect with. That poet was Robert Frost. His words hit me in virtually every poem. I can feel something, maybe not what he was feeling, but I connect with it. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
