Robert Frost: The Work of Knowing : with a New Afterword
Stanford University Press, 1990 - 349 pages
The work of American poet Robert Frost (1874-1963) aspired to be accessible and colloquial. Instead of looking to Europe for inspiration, as did some of his contemoraries, Frost aimed to develop an authentic voice, with the rhythms and vocabulary of everyday American speech.
