Summary: This is a book of numerous poems such as "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. The poems in this book are inspirational and appropriate for all ages. There is something in here for everyone!

Personal Reaction: I was asked to memorize some of the poems from this book throughout school.The older I get, the more I can relate to some of the words written here. Several of the poems left me with something to think about.

Classroom Extension: Students could be asked to memorize poems like I was asked to. They could also be asked to illustrate the poems.

Well, inspired by Maurice and Donald, I decided to take a whack at some poetry. Relatively classic, but I thought a safe beginning. I have to say that some of them were a bit of torture for me, and some I really quite enjoyed. I suppose I do like some poetry then eh? Always good to try new things now and then. Though, I did read it in bits over a few weeks, and I'm not sure I would enjoy reading poetry exclusively...there is some that I appreciate and that is good to know. ( )

There are some beautiful and apt pictures in these poems - the tip of a flame like the tip of a tongue, old snow like an old newspaper - they are delightful images! Some of these poems are bitter - people behaving not very well - some of these poems are whimsical, and some are poignant. Lovely. ( )

I'm sorry, but I just don't like Robert Frost that much. Aside from The Road Not Taken and Mending Wall, I don't care for his poetry. ( )

These deceptively simple lines from the title poem of this collection suggest Robert Frost at his most representative: the language is simple, clear and colloquial, yet dense with meaning and wider significance. Drawing upon everyday incidents, common situations and rural imagery, Frost fashioned poetry of great lyrical beauty and potent symbolism. Now a selection of the best of his early works is available in this volume, originally published in 1916 under the title Mountain Interval. Included are many moving and expressive poems: An Old Man's Winter Night, In the Home Stretch, Meeting and Passing, Putting In the Seed, A Time to Talk, The Hill Wife, The Exposed Nest, The Sound of Trees and more. All are reprinted here complete and unabridged. A treasury of Frost's most expressive verse.… (more)
