Praise For The Poetry of Robert Frost

"Of all the poetry written in our generation, Frost's is most likely to stand the test of time." --Lewis Gannett

"Of U.S. poets, none has lodged poems more surely where they will be hard to get rid of. . . . His lines often have the trenchancy and inevitability of folk sayings." --Time

"No other American poet has so much art or so much subject matter." --Mark Van Doren

"Frost was the first American who could be honestly reckoned a master-poet by world standards." --Robert Graves
