Poem-a-Day: "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening"

A poem selected by Lacey Bast, English 348:

"Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," by Robert Frost.

Read or watch a "poem flow," or watch this video of Frost reading his poem:

Robert Frost (March 26, 1874-January 29, 1963) was a very inspirational American poet. He’s highly regarded for his realistic interpretations of rural life and his use of informal American speech. He frequently inserted settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, using them to analyze complex philosophical and social themes. Frost was one of the most popular and critically respected poets of his generation and was honored with for Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry.
