Note from the Frost Free Library
The Pastoral Art of Robert Frost by John F. Lynen is a integral work in the Frost canon. The book is well worth reading in its entirety for insight into the use of pastoralism as a poetic device. Lynen's observation of how Frost uses nature in his poetry is particularly useful. We believe Chapter 5 is of special interest concerning Frost's use of the rural landscape. We wish to thank Yale University Press for permission to reproduce this chapter. It is a welcome addition to the Frost Free Library.
