featuring George Lensing, Mann Family Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus

“Robert Frost’s Poems grants us an informed celebration of New England’s countryside, an appreciation of common people (especially their grace, candor, and wisdom), an ongoing encounter with life’s predicaments and truths, and a rich self-portrait of the great American poet who ‘had a lover’s quarrel with the world.’”

“Frost has bequeathed to his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding.”—John F. Kennedy

“Frost was the first American poet who could honestly be reckoned a master-poet by world standards.”—Robert Graves

“[Our] most eminent [and] most distinguished . . . Anglo-American poet.”—T.S. Eliot
