Frost: A Literary Life Reconsidered
Although this book does not attempt to revive the image of Frost as a benign, white-haired sage, it does present him in a strikingly different light than did Lawrance Thompson's controversial three-volume biography. William H. Pritchard sees Frost whole, demonstrating the complex interaction between the poet's life and work. Based not only on the poetry, but on letters, notebooks, recorded interviews, and public appearances as well, 'Frost: A Literary Life Reconsidered' examines the most interesting and significant aspects of Frost's life and poetry and offers an attentive, sensitive portrait of an artist whose critical reputation continues to grow.
