A Scientific Companion to Robert Frost

Virginia F. Smith

Liverpool University Press

The years between West-Running Brook and the publication of the Pulitzer-Prize winning collection A Further Range in 1936 were filled with great upheaval, joy, and sadness for the Frost family, including two deaths, cross-country moves, marriages, and births. In contrast, Frost’s career as a poet was flourishing, marked by a Pulitzer Prize for his collected poems in 1931 and increasing national recognition. In this collection, we see Frost sorting through his life, including childhood events (“At Woodward’s Gardens”), his time as a mill worker (“A Lone Striker,” “A Trial Run”), his life as a farmer (“Blue Ribbon at Amesbury,” ”The Gold Hesperidee”), and scenes from rural life (“Two Tramps in Mud Time,” “A Drumlin Woodchuck”) He also writes of ancient humans (“A Missive Missile”), the history of the earth (“Build Soil”), evolution of life (“Design”), and looks to the stars (“Lost in Heaven,” “The Master Speed.”)
