The Road Not Taken And Other Poems
For some, the song of America is an anthem, exalting the fabled American Dream; for others, it is a funeral dirge for a dream indefinitely deferred. Yet, from the optimism of Emma Lazarus's The New Colossus to the disenchantment of Paul Laurence Dunbar's We Wear the Mask, the diverse and sometimes dissonant voices in this collection combine to form an eclectic collage of American poetry.
"The Road Not Taken, Birches, and Other Poems" contains some of Frost's best-known, anthologized, and closely examined poems, such as "The Road Not Taken," "An Old Man's Winter Night," "Birches," and "'Out, Out---'." As a whole, the volume is a reflection on space and time, on the boundaries where city meets country, where humans meet nature, and where humans meet each other.

Winner of four Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, Robert Frost is best remembered for his depictions of early 20th century rural New England life and for his command of American colloquial speech. Criticized by some as being out of touch with the Modernist movement in poetry exemplified by contemporaries such as T. S. Eliot and E. E. Cummings, it is probably in fact his adherence to traditionalism that so endeared him to his fans.
