Autumn Harvest: Selected Poems
Autumn Harvest brings a decade of Stanley Frost's poems together in one anthology that is varied in both style and content. Spiced with humour, children's verses, Chaucerian-style narratives, and incisive historical and political comments, the poems offer religious and philosophical meditations on matters both timely and timeless. Whether he is capturing a sunset in a Hampstead garden, conveying the emotional impact of Trudeau's funeral, recounting the imperishable story of Abelard and Heloise, saluting the vitality and universality of the English language, distilling the magic of Christmas, or drafting a prequel to Paradise Lost, Stanley Frost writes to be understood.
