16 November 2011 | Robert Frost: An American Memory
Robert Frost once remarked to a friend that he wanted to write a poem that would be remembered for years. Not only has he succeeded in this, he has surpassed his own expectations by writing many poems that are still being memorised, recited and loved. This was proved recently at the Poet in the City US Laureates event, where Robert Hass and Kay Ryan were seen reciting their favourite Frost poems from memory (including an improvised duet of “The Birches”).
