In Lea's rendering, these people may look like a Rockwell painting - the New England backdrop is little changed - but they are more the descendants of Frost's people in their inner dark, no longer sure of their purpose or place. They are, in short, our contemporaries."--Jacket

The breath of parted lips : voices from the Robert Frost Place( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CavanKerry produced The Breath of Parted Lips: Voices from the Robert Frost Place. With an introduction by New Hampshire Poet Laureate Donald Hall, that anthology showcased all 24 Resident Poets--each of whom had spent a summer writing and living in Frost's farmhouse. But it became clear that the poetic voices of the Frost Place were more numerous and various than a single volume could suggest. This successor volume, edited by Frost Place poet and essayist Sydney Lea, collects the work of faculty, participants at the annual poetry festival, and Resident Poets who have visited after the appearance of Volume I. --CavanKerry Press

What does a good, long ramble in the woods reveal to us about our shared human condition? How do we gracefully shed our civilized layers of defensive behavior, our fear of discovery, of the unknown or once-known but forgotten? Award-winning poet and outdoorsman Sydney Lea vividly explores these issues in this compelling, refreshing and humorous memoir. --Story Line Press
