Robert Frost: An Anthology of Recent Criticism
Edited by Manorama Trikha
This anthology, an exciting and extensive coverage of recent criticism on the poetry of Robert Frost, problematizes his representations of modernism, pastoralism, poetic theory, and several of his other major concerns. It also interrogates the poet’s enormous efforts at resolving the persisting dichotomies between past and present, man and nature, life and poetry, and chaos and order in arriving at proper “connections” in “a culture of disconnections.” The volume offers a searching and stimulating revaluation of the poet’s entire oeuvre, of his “thought-felt vision of human experience.”
