Robert Frost on the Farm ~ New Hampshire farming in 1900 as told by the poet

DETAILS

The poetry of Robert Frost educates us about New England farming at the start of the 20th Century. (Hint: It was hard.) In celebration of both New England history and Robert Frost’s poetry, author and poet Jeffrey Zygmont recites a selection of Frost’s poems about farming. Frost’s expressive and much-loved poetry helps us appreciate the rigorous demands of farm life in our region a century ago. Recited from memory, each poem is accompanied by commentary about its artistic beauty, about the experiences and emotions it expresses, plus background on Frost that gives us insight into the poem’s origin and intention. The program includes a summary of Frost’s life. This lively discussion and recital of some of Robert Frost’s best poems is a celebration of both New Hampshire farming and Robert Frost’s unique gift for capturing it in poetry.
