Description

Robert Lee Frost was one of the most popular and respected American poets of the twentieth century. He received four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry and was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 1960 for his poetical works Lesley Lee Francis (the granddaughter of Robert Frost) was attending The Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia as a visiting scholar and scheduled a lecture at Lord Fairfax Community College in my home-town of Middletown, Virginia. Lesley offered many unique insights into the mind, personality and family life of Robert Frost. After the lecture, I cajoled her into reminiscing about her relationship with and knowledge of, her grandfather Robert Lee Frost. The book discusses the intimate insights into Robert Frost's poetic motivations, ambitions, his views on travel, his farm life, his goals, his views on Carl Sandburg & Chaucer, his unpublished works and the origin of his epitaph. This book is the result of that interview. The book also contains over 150 early poems by Robert Frost. Library of Congress Control Number: 2015917632show more
