The Poetry of Robert Frost: The Collected Poems, Complete and Unabridged

Front Cover
Macmillan, 1979 - Poetry - 607 pages
The long awaited comprehensive and authoritative edition brings together for the first time the full contents of all eleven of Frost's individual books of verse, from A Boy's Will through In the Clearing. More than 350 poems comprise this new volume, scrupulously prepared under the editorship of Edward Connery Lathem, a Frost scholar, Librarian of Dartmouth College, and friend of the poet. Mr. Lathem, in his notes, records extensive bibliographical information about the publication of Robert Frost's poetry during nearly three-quarters of a century -- from 1894, when his first poem appeared in a publication of national circulation, to the final volume the poet worked on just before his death. The editor also carefully traces textual changes that have occurred in the poetry over the years. -- Jacket flap.
