The woods are lovely, dark and deep

I just rediscovered the famous poem by Robert Frost.

You can find a bunch of information about Frost and, of course, other poets on The Poetry Foundation's website.

In a sense, Frost stands at the crossroads of nineteenth-century American poetry and modernism, for in his verse may be found the culmination of many nineteenth-century tendencies and traditions as well as parallels to the works of his twentieth-century contemporaries. Taking his symbols from the public domain, Frost developed, as many critics note, an original, modern idiom and a sense of directness and economy that reflect the imagism of Ezra Pound and Amy Lowell.
