Restless spirit

A Restless Spirit: The Story of Robert Frost
by Natalie S. Bober

A well-written and detailed biography of American poet Robert Frost, A Restless Spirit is ideal for high school and university students who want insight into the meaning behind Frost's poems. 

Throughout his life, Frost struggled to become a well-known poet while trying to support his wife and children. Sensitive, quick-tempered, and with a great deal of wanderlust, he moved his family from place to place, taking teaching jobs to supplement his poetry earnings. Tragedy and mental illness were a part of his life, but he was always sustained by his love of nature.

The book includes a good selection of Frost's poems (either excerpts or complete ones) and numerous black-and-white photographs.
