Here, based on extensive research into his manuscripts and published work, is the first authoritative and truly comprehensive collection of his writings. Eagerly awaited by scholars and general readers alike, it brings together in a single volume all the major poetry, a generous selection of uncollected poems, all of Frost's dramatic writing, and the most extensive gathering of his prose writings ever published. The core of this collection is the 1949 Complete Poems of Robert Frost, the last edition supervised by the poet himself. This version of the poems is free of the unauthorized editorial changes introduced into subsequent editions. Also included is In The Clearing (1962), Frost's final volume of poetry. Verse drawn from letters, articles, pamphlets, and journals makes up the largest selection of uncollected poems ever assembled, including nearly two dozen beautiful early works printed here for the first time. Also gathered are all the dramatic works: three plays and two verse masques. The unprecedented prose section includes more than three times as many items as any other collection available. It is rich and diverse, presenting many newly discovered or rediscovered pieces. Especially unusual items include Frost's written contribution for John F. Kennedy's inauguration and two fascinating 1959 essays on "The Future of Man". Several manuscript items are published here for the first time, including the essays "'Caveat Poeta'" and "The Way There", Frost's remarks on being appointed poetry consultant to the Library of Congress in 1958, the preface to a proposed new edition of North of Boston, and many others. A selection of letters represents all of Frost's important comments aboutprosody, poetics, style, and his theory of "sentence sounds".

"Two roads diverged in the wood and I took the one less taken by. And that has made all the difference" -Robert Frost
