The Place We Live (2014-04-26) posted Apr 26 at 12PM

Local poets Roy Mash and Rebecca Foust take opposing points of view to explore Robert Frost's relevance to contemporary west coast audiences for poetry.

Frost's life and work present a number of interesting dichotomies. Widely and iconically perceived as the quintessential New England farmer poet, Frost was born and lived for a time in the city of San Francisco.

He was a farmer, and a poet, yes-but was also a highly sophisticated scholar with so many honorary degrees that he had a quilt made of the hoods, a savvy promoter of his own work.
