The continued interest in this book of criticism about Frost’s poetry is testament to the lasting popularity of his poems. He was not a groundbreaker, artistically speaking, but his importance as an American poet is never in question. His poetry has continued to move people. This volume is broken up into the following chapters:
Man into Myth: Frost’s Life
Poet in a Landscape: Frost’s Career
The Appropriate Tool: Frost’s Craftmanship
The Aim Was Song: Frost’s Theories
Roughly Zones: Frost’s Themes

It’s interesting to me that this more recent book hasn’t gotten more recent circulation than the older book above. In any case, it doesn’t hurt to have two books about Frost on the shelves. This one includes both a biographical section and a section with three critical essays by different people. The bio section is larger than the critical section. Again, keep it until patrons give it a strong no-confidence by 20 years of no interest.
