Four volumes by Robert Frost

It goes without saying that every library in the U.S., large or small, should at least have a volume of selected poetry by Frost, preferably a collected works. Albertville has a Complete Poems, an Early Poems, as well as In the Clearing and North of Boston. Frost is an icon of American poetry. His poetry is accessible and is especially suited to a rural area since it dwells so much on life in the country. Although he’s considered a New England poet, I trust farm folks around here could relate to much of his poetry. His work now has historical value as well, portraying a time when electricity couldn’t be taken for granted, a phone call required an operator, and doors were left unlocked in case someone in need passed by while you were away. For Albertville, the more the better where Frost is concerned.
