F405 Fall 2018 The Poetry of Robert Frost
Tuesdays, 11:50–1:15, Sept. 18–Oct. 23
Six sessions
Instructor: Lesley Francis

Some of you will recall the inauguration of President Kennedy on a bitterly cold day when Robert Frost recited from memory the historic words of “The Gift Outright.” You may remember from childhood such popular favorites as “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “Mending Wall,” and “The Road Not Taken.” This course will explore the four-time Pulitzer Prize winner from a variety of perspectives. Dr. Francis, the poet’s granddaughter, brings her extensive publications and personal experience to bear on the poet’s rich and varied verse. The class will be using Robert Frost: Collected Poems, Prose, and Plays.
Lesley Lee Francis, who holds an AB degree from Radcliffe College and a PhD in romance languages from Duke University, has lectured and published extensively on her grandfather, Robert Frost. Her two books—Robert Frost: An Adventure in Poetry and You Come Too: My Journey with Robert Frost—are currently available.
