In addition to being one of the most beloved and influential writers of the twentieth century, Frost was also an extremely perceptive observer of natural patterns. His ecological insights enrich the beauty and intricacy of his poems while also heightening his reader’s own understanding of northern New England’s densely forested landscape. This lecture will look at both these aspects of Frost as a poetic naturalist through readings and discussions of some of his most celebrated works. Along the way Elder will also relate his poetry directly to his own experiences in the forests of Vermont, the same landscape that inspired Frost.
