Volume 2. "In the years covered here, publication of Selected Poems, New Hampshire, and West-Running Brook enhanced Robert Frost's stature in America and abroad, and the demands of managing his career--as public speaker, poet, and teacher--intensified. A good portion of the correspondence is devoted to Frost's appointments at the University of Michigan and Amherst College, through which he played a major part in staking out the positions poets would later hold in American universities. Other letters show Frost helping to shape the Bread Loaf School of English and its affiliated Writers' Conference. We encounter him discussing his craft with students and fostering the careers of younger poets. His??observations (and reservations) about educators are illuminating and remain pertinent. And family life--with all its joys and sorrows, hardships and satisfactions--is never less than central to Frost's concerns"--Dust jacket flap.
Pensive, mercurial, and often funny, the private Robert Frost remains less appreciated than the public poet. The Letters of Robert Frost, the first major edition of the correspondence of this complex and subtle verbal artist, includes hundreds of unpublished letters whose literary interest is on a par with Dickinson, Lowell, and Beckett.
