I really love Frost's poetry, folksy, plain and homely but with deeper underlying meaning, so I am pleased with the poetry, how could I not be, but this particular copy, though extremely cheap has been written over to such an extent that reading the poetry is difficult. Considering the fact that I have bought copies of other books for 1p and they have been absolutely pristine, this is pretty awful.

The good news is that my copy had 56 poems and not the 40 advertised. The bad news is that the notes and annotations which were supposed to be an integral part of the book are entirely absent! Since this was the main reason I bought this particular book it's a serious disappointment.

Heavy underlining and margin scribbles in dark blue ink. Most pages were clear, but this ruined the book for me.

This is a beautiful collection of some of Frost's best-loved poetry. I love the way he explores life as something that is enigmatic and unexplainable, which is evident through this entire selection. Included are perhaps Frost's most famous poems: 'Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening' and 'The Road Not Taken' which both consider the conflict between life and death, the choices we as individuals must make through life, and both use some fantastic imagery to suggest how this can often be a difficult and bleak process. There are also some highly personal accounts such as 'Home Burial', which is written more like a narrative, and upsettingly tells of the breakdown of a marriage when a couple's child dies. This relates to Frost's own son's death in 1900. Much of Frost's work relates to isolation in some capacity, and the individual searching for truth, trying to make sense of life. 'The Death Of The Hired Man' and 'Acquainted With The Night' are both great examples of this, focusing on how bleak and lonely life can be. Frost does also write on other aspects such as nature, farm-life, and rural America, although these often return to isolation and the discovery of one's life and inner self. While Frost often seems to ponder upon one emotion, such as resignation, monotony and life's limitations, his poetry never reaches any definitive conclusions. This is unimportant though. There mere fact that through reading Frost's poetry, his readers are exposed to such ideas and provoked into an introspective examination of one's own life is where his genius lies. A fantastic collection!

I was under the impression that I had ordered a book that was an exact copy of my own book i.e. Robert Frost Selected Poems edited with an introduction by Ian Hamilton ?Read more
