The Road Not Taken and Other Poems By Robert Frost Cover Image


A deluxe edition of Frost's early poems, selected by poet David Orr for the centennial of The Road Not Taken
For one hundred years, Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken has enchanted and challenged readers with its deceptively simple premise a person reaches a fork in the road, facing a choice full of doubt and possibility. "The Road Not Taken and Other Poems"presents Frost's best-loved poem along with other works from his brilliant early years, including such poems as After Apple-Picking, The Oven Bird, and Mending Wall. Award-winning poet and critic David Orr's introduction discusses why Frost remains so central (if often misunderstood) in American culture and how the beautiful intricacy of his poetry keeps inviting generation after generation to search for meaning in his work.
