About this Item

First Edition Thus, Stated Third edition but actually the second printing of the First Edition Printed in America. 8vo, publisher's original blue cloth lettered and ruled in gilt on the spine and lettered in gilt within a double-ruled frame on the upper cover, in the publisher's original dustjacket printed in black on the upper cover and spine. 137 pp. A fine and handsome copy, only the most minor of mellowing to the tips, the jacket unusually well preserved, whole and without chipping, just a bit of wear at the fold lines and extremely minor rubbing to the spine. SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION AND IN THE DUSTWRAPPER. THIS ISSUE WAS ACTUALLY THE FIRST REPRINT OF THE FIRST EDITION PRINTED IN AMERICA. Ď.the absence of the spectacular is the essence of the man and the manís mind. Truth and its beauty grow more surely from the unfolding of normal life than from any sudden heat of collision. Illumination may sometimes strike through in an unexpected flash, but wisdom is the clear light of steady living.what lies behind the poetry of Robert Frost arises from that deeper level where man engages in the unending struggle to adjust spirit to the world and the world to spirit. It was in NORTH OF BOSTON that he found himself.and in a few quiet poems that follow, the spirit matures. The settings of so many of his poems belong to NORTH OF BOSTON.but the heart of Frostís poetry is unlimited by place or time.though much of life and its import have tended to come to him.in the garments of country life north of Boston.the substance and meaning of his poetry is human life--moving on, struggling.moving on again.í The book is vital to his development as a great poet. It remains in all his oeuvre perhaps the most prominent of his books. Bookseller Inventory # 25907
