Deep Woods: the Story of Robert Frost by Peggy Caravantes is one of the wonderful books I acquired this year at our library’s annual book sale. This small volume provided me an opportunity to expand my knowledge of one of my favorite poets.
The book covers Frost’s entire life. I learned a great deal I never knew about his family and career. Clearly, Frost was a complex individual with deep convictions about life and personal responsibility to his family. Thanks to this book, I gained insight into his work as well. The Timeline in the back of the biography is very helpful.
Reading this book made me glad I “traveled by” the poetry table of discarded books at the sale this year!
