About this title:

Synopsis: Named an "Outstanding Academic Book" by "Choice" magazine, "The Ordeal of Robert Frost" depicts Frost as a thoroughly contemporary poet, dynamically engaged - in his own way - with the developments of literary modernism and American cultural criticism and with the social and political issues of his time. Placing Frost's critical concerns in a broad context of literary theory, Mark Richardson explores the poet's struggles with the vocation of poetry - spiritually, socially, aesthetically, and personally. Through close readings of Frost's poetry and often ignored prose, Richardson argues that Frost's debates with Van Wyck Brooks, Malcolm Cowley, and H. L. Mencken informed his poetics and his poetic style just as much as did his deep identification with earlier writers like Emerson and William James. Richardson also uncovers Frost's neglected similarities with, and important differences from, Pound and Eliot.

Review: ADVANCE PRAISE "One of the truly essential books on Frost." -- David Cowart, author of Literary Symbiosis: The Reconfigured Text in Twentieth-Century Writing "An original, daring, deeply committed work that tells us much about Frost's art and the motives behind and embodied in it." -- William H. Pritchard, Henry Clay Folger Professor of English, Amherst College "In The Ordeal of Robert Frost Richardson sheds more light than any other recent writer on Frost... [It is] one of those rare scholarly books likely to find a broader readership." -- Richard Wakefield, Arts and Letters "One of the most accomplished books on Frost to appear in recent years... If you are interested in seeing Frost in a new light--as a poet who responds in subtle and canny ways to ideological strains in American culture through the terms of his poetics--you cannot afford to miss this book." -- Tyler Hoffman, South Atlantic Review
