quotable quotes about frost
Quotable Quotes about Frost
  • "Frost's independence was grounded in his ability to handle ordinary New England Speech and in his surprising skill at taking the most conventional poetic forms and giving them a twist all his own. In an era when "good was being equated by many artists with "new," the only new thing about Robert Frost was old: individual poetic genius. Using this gift to impose his own personality on the iambic line in verse, Frost created a poetic voice that was unique and impossible to imitate" (Leggett and Brinnin 534).
  • "…traditional verse forms and offered penetrating insights into a variety of American character types" (534).
  • "…stimulated by meeting English poets, Frost continued to write poetry, though he found his subjects in New England" (Sime and Wahlgren 558).
  • "These poems were marked by flinty realism and an impressive mastery of iambic rhythm, narrative dialogue, and the dramatic monologue" (558).
  • By 1915, "he was an accomplished writer who had already extended the scope and character of American literature into the twentieth century" (559).
  • "In a period when poetry was being changed by verbal experiment and by exotic influences from abroad, Frost remained devoted to traditional forms and firmly rooted in the American soil" (559).
  • "…he seemed to belong more to the past than to the present…" (559).
  • "Neither the cranky realism nor the homly philosophy of self-reliance and spiritual independence that mark his work have been forgotten" (559).
  • "…created a unique voice that remained unaffected by the clamor of modernism" (559).
  • From “The Moderns” and Frost Bio
