      " Generally speaking I don't feel like I have an appreciation for poetry, and struggle to get on board with it. Not true of Robert Frost, this man speaks to me. "

      " If you only have one comprehensive book of Robert Frost's poetry, this is the book I would choose. I have read through it over and over. It's not a book you sit down and read the whole thing. It's a great book to have for anyone who loves Robert Frost. "

      " I've always struggled with properly appreciating poetry. For the most part, I just don't get it. But Frost? That's a different story. I LOVE Frost. His frequent use of nature, the personification of nature, the questions nature poses, the answers nature gives, all make sense to me. I get it. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cinward | 6/5/2011

      " I've been slowly meandering my way through this book for a coupld months now. I found it at a local thrift shop. It was very good, I've read bits and pices of his work before, the ones that end up in school text books. So I was really happy to find this, since pretty much all his poems are good. "
