Review

Unknown and virtually unpublished until he was almost 40, Robert Frost went on to become America's poet; he was so popular he made frequent television appearances and was honored by President Kennedy. His publisher, Alfred Edwards, and fellow poets Seamus Heaney, Richard Wilbur, and Joseph Brodsky discuss this late bloomer's reputation as a Yankee poet, his discovery in England where his first two books were published, and the deceptive simplicity of his style. Frost explains himself and reads some of his poems in excerpts of vintage tape. Friends and colleagues also discuss his difficult relationship with his wife and the tragic deaths of three of his children and how these affected his work. Poems that are read from include "Mending Wall," "The Woodpile," and "Acquainted with the Night." While some poems are illustrated in predictable fashion ("After Apple Picking" with footage of boughs heavy with apples), "Home Burial" is dramatized with a riveting dramatic reading by actors, including Academy Award nominee Joan Allen as Frost's wife. --Kimberly Heinrichs
