Frost, Robert - Selected Poems - ( Item 125512 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2010. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight bump to the edge of one panel. Introduced by Paul Muldoon. Illustrated by Jonathan Gibbs. Quarter-bound in buckram with paper sides. Printed with a design by Jonathan Gibbs. At the age of 86, Robert Frost read his poem 'The Gift Outright' at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy. In turn, the new president paid tribute to Frost: 'He has bequeathed his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding'. This selection is introduced by the Irish poet Paul Muldoon, who provides a beautifully close reading of 'Directive' as he examines Frost's enduring appeal on both sides of the Atlantic. Jonathan Gibbs's deep connection to nature made him the perfect choice to illustrate the work of a man who modestly declared that his life's ambition was to write 'a few poems it will be hard to get rid of '.
