Publisher Description

Introduction Coming to England to talk about Frost's poetry qualifies as a gesture that is both imitative and historic considering that Robert Frost moved to England--bringing his wife and four young children--in hope of launching his career as a poet. As is easily confirmed by published documents and his several biographers, Frost had not been able to find a publisher in America (Walsh 1988). Leaving New England in 1912, Frost hoped that England, with its long tradition of lyric poetry, might hold more promise for an unknown American poet seeking appreciative readers. As readers now know well, Frost's fortunes did turn in England where he met with immediate success first in finding a publisher and then in being well received.
