Note from the Frost Free Library
Robert Frost & The New England Renaissance by George Monteiro of Brown University explores Frost's roots to 3 important New England writers - Dickinson, Thoreau and Emerson. The book is well worth reading in its entirety. Frost's own poems not only echo to each other, but to other poets as well. This work seeks to integrate Frost geographically and intellectually in a tradition which he himself acknowledged metaphorically in his poem "The Tuft of Flowers." We wish to thank the author and The University Press of Kentucky for permission to reproduce these chapters. Both are a welcome addition to the Frost Free Library.
"Roads and Paths"

"The Road Not Taken,"  "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," and
"The Draft Horse" are discussed in terms of literary traditions tracing
connections to Dante's, Inferno.

"Linked Analogies"

A discussion of "The Tuft of Flowers" and "Mending Wall"
tracing connections to Emerson and Thoreau.
