Robert Frost is the master of 20th century American poetry. His most famous work, “The Road Not Taken”, is one of the most recognizable poems in the American literary canon. This compilation, the last collection of poetry published in Frost’s lifetime, became an instant bestseller upon its release in 1962. It features “The Gift Outright” which Frost read at the presidential inauguration of John F. Kennedy in 1961. This moment marked a highpoint in Frost’s literary career. As the first poet to ever speak at an American presidential inauguration, the reading cemented him as a figurehead of arts and letters, and began the tradition of reciting poetry during the inaugural ceremony.

In the black original jacket slightly worn, chips and creasing in spine affecting title on spine label. Original black and silver embossed boards. Boards tight and secure, pages clean. A good copy.

A good copy of the last collection of poetry issued in Frost’s lifetime.
