4-0 out of 5 stars Into My Own
Frost wrote this first collection of poems when he was forty, and it was published to rather diminutive attention in England, where Frost was staying. There were not many favorable American reviews, except for Ezra Pound's, who, like Emerson noticing Whitman, saw something of the poet in Frost. I have little else to add to Solinas's review except that these poems are not entitled A Man's Will, but A Boy's Will. This, I think, is Frost's aknowledgment of his immaturity, his ambition, and the continued wonder and fascination of his poetic eye, which, like the Wordsworth in Tintern Abbey, mingles the awe of childhood with the draughts of age.

5-0 out of 5 stars How the world found Frost
Robert Frost came into public view with "A Boy's Will," his first short collection of poetry. While Frost's "voice" is a bit unformed in these poems, the rich ponderings of nature and love are never stronger, full of "sun-saturated meadows," November-loving girls, and pearly streams.

"I should not be withheld but that some day/Into their vastness I should steal away," Frost announces in his first poem. He follows up this statement with everything from eerie story-poems ("Love and a Question") to exultant ("A Prayer in Spring") to melancholy meditations on nature's beauty, love, and broken hearts.

Poets take awhile to reach their peak, and Frost was still starting out in "A Boy's Will." That said, it's astounding how good he was even in his first volume of poetry (though at times the rhymes are a little too simple, and the subjects don't vary much). Most striking is Frost's passion -- his enthusiasm, sorrow and thoughts seem to spill off the page.

What really makes Frost's poetry come alive is his descriptions of nature -- one poem is entirely devoted to a moonlit search for a brook, since the well has gone dry. Sylvan god Pan even makes a cameo in one poem, an enjoyable little bit about Pan surveying an uninhabited forest. However, he ventures out of the woods from time to time, such as the stirring historical poem "In Equal Sacrifice," about Douglas carrying Robert the Bruce's heart to the Holy Land.

"A Boy's Will" is a stirring -- though very short -- collection of Robert Frost's poetry, and has the prestige of introducing this poet to the world. While Frost's poetry still had some growing pains, its beauty and richness make up for any flaws. ... Read more

Product Description
Robert Frost is one of the most popularAmerican poets and remains widely read. His work is deceptively simple, but reveals its complexities upon close reading. This Introduction provides a comprehensive but intensive look at his remarkable oeuvre. The poetry is discussed in detail in relation to ancient and modern traditions as well as to Frost's particular interests in language and sound, metaphor, science, religion, and politics. Faggen both looks back to the literary traditions that shape Frost's use of form and language, and forward to examine his influence on poets writing today. The recent controversies in Frost criticism and in particular in Frost biography are brought into sharp focus as they have shaped the poet's legacy and legend. The most accessible overview available, this book will be invaluable to students, readers and admirers of Frost. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Frost as a consummate craftsman of psychologically engaging poetry...
With the sturdy binding and beautifully illustrated cover -- Thomas Hart Benton's oil painting, "Haystack" (1938) -- this is an inviting introduction to Robert Frost's life, poetry and critical reputation.

Robert Faggen, Professor of Literature at Claremont McKenna College, contends that Frost's popularity and notority from some of his best known and loved poems obscure the real range of his work and achievements. Offers an excellent biographical introduction, then focuses on Frost's major poetry. Finds that while he was "a consummate craftsman and maker of some of the most psychologically engaging and artistically beguiling poetry of his or any time," a careful look at his life and work also reveals him to be "a far more elusive shapeshifter and trickster, a learned and trenchant intellectual with a sometimes terrifyingly bleak vision of human existence."

Named after Robert E. Lee, Robert Lee Frost lived a long life, long enough to endure seeing his sister committed to a mental institution (where she died in 1929), the death of four of his children, the suffering of two with mental illness, the horror of losing a son to suicide, and lose his wife, Elinor, to cancer and a series of heart attacks in 1938. "He long outlived his wife and fell into an affair with a woman who would not leave her husband."

We learn that this poor poet-farmer, was actually greatly assisted financially by his grandfather, was educated at Harvard in psychology, philosophy and geology by some of the most recognized teachers of his time, and spent much of his early career teaching literature and psychology before traveling to England and mingling with such luminaries as: Ezra Pound, William Butler Yeats, T.E. Hulme, and Ford Madox Ford.

I enjoyed the sections of the book that offered a biographical or period-context for Frost's poetry, that discussed his interest and roots in the writings of Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant, Emerson, Edwin Arlington Robinson, Wordsworth, Thoreau, and Emerson. And, I thought Faggen did a good job of discussing Frost's literary reputation in the context of his time and contemporaries.

From the perspective of undergraduate students using the book to write a paper -- it would have been helpful if Frost's major poems were reprinted in full and the discussion of the broader thematic elements incorporated into the explications that are typically found following the snippets of text of the poem discussed.

Also, the inclusion of illustrations and photographs to break up the text would have made the interior of the book more enticing to undergraduates. And, while I liked the inclusion of a "Further Reading" bibliography in the back, I was surprised that the titles of Frost's poems were not included alphabetically in the index; instead, one has to go to the entry for "Frost, Robert", and then look for the title and page references there.

Still, these are minor issues and due most likely to the series format. As such, I enthusiastically recommend this title as being a well-written, interesting and very useful introduction to the life and work of one of the most influential and important American writers of the 20th century.

Highly recommended for college and university libraries and large public libraries supporting local high school students writing papers on literary topics.
