About this title


Book by Muir, Helen

From Booklist:

Muir, a Florida journalist, drew on her journal and personal correspondence to provide a memoir of her friendship with poet Robert Frost during the 30 years (1934^-63) he wintered in South Miami. Frost and his wife, Elinor, bought property there to escape their tiring public life. After Elinor's death, Frost maintained their five-acre Pencil Pines, comforting himself with bird-watching and stargazing, cultivating flowers and friendships. Frost was a natural teacher who loved to read aloud to his neighbors and who was instrumental in establishing the now-famous Bread Loaf summer writers' workshops. We see him through Muir's eyes as a complex man who was at once petulant and entertaining, self-pitying and curious, a genius at public relations and a guilt-ridden father. Most moving of all is her account of Frost's intense grief following Elinor's death and the later suicide of his son, Carol. As he aged, Frost feared losing his &quot;writing touch,&quot; but he died with yet another poem in progress. Those who knew him in Florida agreed that, above all, Frost had an undeniable &quot;presence.&quot; Readers will experience that presence here. <i>Patricia Hassler</i>
