Local poets Roy Mash and Rebecca Foust take opposing points of view to explore Robert Frost's relevance to contemporary west coast audiences for poetry.
Frost's life and work present a number of interesting dichotomies. Widely and iconically perceived as the quintessential New England farmer poet, Frost was born and lived for a time in the city of San Francisco.
He was a farmer, and a poet, yes-but was also a highly sophisticated scholar with so many honorary degrees that he had a quilt made of the hoods, a savvy promoter of his own work.
