Interviews With Robert Frost

 
9780030546006: Interviews With Robert Frost

A new edition with index added. This book consists of a selection of interviews spanning a period of nearly half a century: from 1915, the year Frost returned to America from England, through 1962, just a few weeks before his death. These interviews have a special importance. They present Frost informally, sometimes casually, yet always in the character of a performer--for performance was ever at the heart of what he aspired to as artist and man: the seeking of an attainment, a mastery, combining both substance and form. Within these interviews is found much of significance that is nowhere else preserved. They contain an invaluable documentation centering upon the life and thought of Frost: his views, impressions, and concepts at different times. The best of them capture and project his presence and manner with a directness and vividness that cannot be derived from his works alone nor from recordings of his readings and talks.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Give me the speed of a perfectly geared automobile that I can slow down to half a mile an hour, to tell one flower from another. My intolerance has been for the throng who complain of the modern pace yet strive to keep it. There is the widest choice of companions you will fall into step with, be they living or dead. There is no such thing as a prescribed tempo--at any rate, not in civilization.

From Library Journal:

Editor Lathem assembled these two titles in 1966 and 1972, respectively, when he was a librarian at Dartmouth. Interviews includes nearly 60 talks with Frost gleaned from newspapers, journals, TV programs, and even student newspapers from 1915 to 1962. LJ's reviewer found that Frost possessed a "remarkable ability to be consistent without becoming a bore" (LJ 7/66). LJ's reviewer also stated that the latter volume was somewhat of a "rarity" in that it was "an attractive concordance" (LJ 4/1/72). This edition of the Concordance includes a revised and expanded introduction by Lathem. This fine duo are essential for academic libraries.
