Taking an online modern poetry course and the first poet up is Frost. Not reading the entire collected, but likely around 20-25 poems. ( )

The only comprehensive gathering of Frost's published poetry, this affordable volume offers the entire contents of his eleven books of verse, from A Boy's Will (1913) to In the Clearing (1962). Frost scholar Lathem, who was also a close friend of the four-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, scrupulously annotated the 350-plus poems in this collection, which has been the standard edition of Frost's work since it first appeared in 1969.

The Poetry of Robert Frost is the entirety of the great American poet’s published work, an authoritative volume that is structured to show his progression from his earliest work to his last—with a little exception at the end. However for those who have only read Frost in school, like me, you will be in for a surprise because the poems in English and/or Literature class are a deceptive selection of his complete works. While this complete book of Robert Frost’s work is wonderful for poetry enthusiasts, for the more general reader I would suggest you look through this volume and decide if you want a smaller, more select volume of his work.

Rural, agrarian, hard lives. The Mending Wall, The Road Not Taken, Acquainted With The Night, The Draft Horse, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening are all my favourites and a few of them I have even memorized. ( )

Frost is the premier poet and the 20th Century poem is How Hard it is to Keep From Being King. Every good statesman should be well acquainted with it. ( )

Disambiguation notice
The 1930 edition, Collected Poems of Robert Frost, is NOT the same as The Poetry of Robert Frost: Complete and Unabridged. I have both books and they are not the same: the 1930 book only includes A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, New Hampshire, and West Running Book, and therefore is NOT complete and unabridged.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0030725356, Hardcover)

Robert Frost's poetry was always simple and direct, yet strangely deep. This is the only comprehensive volume of Frost's published verse, including the contents of all eleven of his individual books of poetry -- from A Boy's Will (1913) to In the Clearing (1962).

The long awaited comprehensive and authoritative edition. The Poetry of Robert Frost brings together for the first time the full contents of all eleven of Frost's individual books of verse, from A Boy's Will through In the Clearing. More than 350 poems comprise this new volume, scrupulously prepared under the editorship of Edward Connery Lathem, a Frost scholar, Librarian of Dartmouth College, and friend of the poet. Mr. Lathem, in his notes, records extensive bibliographical information about the publication of Robert Frost's poetry during nearly three-quarters of a century -- from 1894, when his first poem appeared in a publication of national circulation, to the final volume the poet worked on just before his death. The editor also carefully traces textual changes that have occurred in the poetry over the years. This handsome volume, the standard edition of Frost's poetry, is a lasting tribute to America's best-loved poet. - Jacket flap.… (more)
