The letters of Robert Frost by Robert Frost( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 2. "In the years covered here, publication of Selected Poems, New Hampshire, and West-Running Brook enhanced Robert Frost's stature in America and abroad, and the demands of managing his career--as public speaker, poet, and teacher--intensified. A good portion of the correspondence is devoted to Frost's appointments at the University of Michigan and Amherst College, through which he played a major part in staking out the positions poets would later hold in American universities. Other letters show Frost helping to shape the Bread Loaf School of English and its affiliated Writers' Conference. We encounter him discussing his craft with students and fostering the careers of younger poets. His??observations (and reservations) about educators are illuminating and remain pertinent. And family life--with all its joys and sorrows, hardships and satisfactions--is never less than central to Frost's concerns"--Dust jacket flap
The Cambridge Companion to Robert Frost by Robert Faggen( Book )

43 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by experts in the field explores key dimensions of Robert Frost's poetry and life. Frost remains one of the most memorable and beguiling of modern poets. Writing in the tradition of Virgil, Milton, and Wordsworth, he transformed pastoral and georgic poetry both in subject matter and form. Mastering the rhythms of ordinary speech, Frost made country life the point from which to view the world and the complexities of human psychology. The essays in this volume enable readers to explore Frost's art and thought, from the controversies of his biography to his subtle reinvention of poetic and metric traditions and the conflicts in his thought about politics, gender, science and religion. This volume includes a chronology and guide to further reading

The Cambridge introduction to Robert Frost by Robert Faggen( )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Frost is one of the most popular of American poets and remains widely read. His work is deceptively simple, but reveals its complexities upon close reading. This Introduction provides a comprehensive but intensive look at his remarkable oeuvre. The poetry is discussed in detail in relation to ancient and modern traditions as well as to Frost's particular interests in language and sound, metaphor, science, religion, and politics. Faggen both looks back to the literary traditions that shape Frost's use of form and language, and forward to examine his influence on poets writing today. The most accessible overview available, this book will be invaluable to students, readers, and admirers of Frost."--Jacket
The flame : poems, notebooks, lyrics, drawings by Leonard Cohen( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Flame is the final work from Leonard Cohen, the revered poet and musician whose fans span generations and whose work is celebrated throughout the world. Featuring poems, excerpts from his private notebooks, lyrics, and hand-drawn self-portraits, The Flame offers an unprecedentedly intimate look inside the life and mind of a singular artist. A reckoning with a life lived deeply and passionately, with wit and panache, The Flame is a valedictory work. 'This volume contains my father's final efforts as a poet, ' writes Cohen's son, Adam Cohen, in his foreword. 'It was what he was staying alive to do, his sole breathing purpose at the end.' Leonard Cohen died in late 2016. But 'each page of paper that he blackened, ' in the words of his son, 'was lasting evidence of a burning soul.''"--Jacket

The letters of Robert Frost by Robert Frost( )

22 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pensive, mercurial, and often funny, the private Robert Frost remains less appreciated than the public poet. The Letters of Robert Frost, the first major edition of the correspondence of this complex and subtle verbal artist, includes hundreds of unpublished letters whose literary interest is on a par with Dickinson, Lowell, and Beckett
Striving towards being : the letters of Thomas Merton and Czeslaw Milosz by Thomas Merton( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1958 Thomas Merton wrote an admiring letter to Czeslaw Milosz about his seminal work The Captive Mind. Milosz replied and thus began an animated correspondence which lasted until Merton's death in 1968. During this highly productive decade, Merton continued, a Trappist, to write about nonviolence and the monastic life. Milosz, meanwhile, was writing influential essays and translating the poetry of Aleksander Wat and Anna Swir. In this dynamic correspondence, Milosz and Merton differ in their views of the role of Communism, share thoughts about the power of literature, and contrast their views on the natural world. As different as Milosz and Merton were, they found common ground in their spiritual search and in a desire to understand the human race. A memorial to a great friendship between two of this century's celebrated men of letter, Striving Towards Being is a testament to the examined life
Robert Frost and the challenge of Darwin by Robert Faggen( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faggen draws on Frost's unpublished notebooks to reveal a complex thinker who willingly engaged with the difficult moral and epistemological implications of natural science and showed their consonance with myths and traditions stretching back to Milton, Lucretius, and the Old Testament. Frost emerges as a thinker for whom poetry was not only artistic expression but also a forum for the trial of ideas and their impact on humanity. Robert Frost and the Challenge of Darwin provides a deeper understanding not only of Frost and modern poetry but of the meaning of Darwin in the modern world, the complex interrelations of literature and science, and the history of American thought

Selected poems by Edwin Arlington Robinson( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edwin Arlington Robinson's finely crafted, formal rhythms mirror the tension the poet sees between life's immutable circumstances and humanity's often tragic attempts to exert control. At once dramatic and witty, his poems lay bare the loneliness and despair of life in genteel small towns, the tyranny of love, and unspoken, unnoticed suffering. The fictional characters he created in "Reuben Bright," "Miniver Cheevy," and "Richard Cory," and the historical figures he brought to life - Lincoln in "The Master" and the great painter in "Rembrandt to Rembrandt"--Harbor demons and passions the world treats with indifference or cruelty. With an introduction that sheds light on Robinson's influence on poets from Eliot and Pound to Frost and Berryman, this collection brings an unjustly neglected poet to a new generation of readers

Mary Weatherford : the neon paintings by Mary Weatherford( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first major publication of Mary Weatherford, who is quickly becoming one of the most prominent artists of her generation, and surveys the artist's neon paintings. Since the beginning of her career she has rooted her abstract painting in subjective experience and brought a feminist perspective to what is perhaps the defining category of modern and contemporary art, breaking down preconceived notions of scale, technical achievement, and formal progress. Weatherford accents the surface of her recent luminous paintings and installations with neon lighting fixtures to evoke the dynamic nature of city life. This beautifully illustrated book presents all of Weatherford's neon works to date, along with essays by Robert Faggen, Katy Siegel, Jennifer Peterson, and an interview with the artist
