This interactive seminar will meet for a six week term, one hour per class. I am more interested in an inclusive group discussion than didactic lecturing.
Robert Frost, in my opinion, is an underread and often misunderstood poet. He doesn't fit easily into any preconceived category, however that is precisely what some people have tried to do with him. He said, "I never dared to be radical when young for fear it would make me conservative when old".
We will work with some of his better known poems as well as some that never seem to get much attention. Here is the list:
If people are interested in reading a biography, I would recommend Robert Frost, A Life by Jay Parini, or A Literary Life Reconsidered by William Pritchard.
