It brings together in a single volume all the major poetry, all of Frosts dramatic writing, and the most extensive gathering of his prose writings ever published. The core of this collection is the 1949 Complete Poems of Robert Frost, the last edition supervised by the poet himself—free of the unauthorized editorial changes introduced into subsequent editions. Also included is In The Clearing (1962), Frosts final volume of poetry. Verse drawn from letters, articles, pamphlets, and journals makes up the largest selection of uncollected poems ever assembled, including nearly two dozen early works printed here for the first time. The prose section is rich and diverse, presenting many newly discovered or rediscovered pieces, including Frosts written contribution for John F. Kennedys inauguration, two fascinating 1959 essays on The Future of Man, and the essays Caveat Poeta and The Way There....A selection of letters represents all of Frosts important comments about prosody, poetics, style, and his theory of sentence sounds.
