Elliot Engel: The Cold Genius of Robert Frost

Sponsored by King’s Grant


Robert Frost is one the most beloved American poets of the twentieth century — despite having a notoriously difficult personality. In this lecture, Dr. Elliot Engel reveals a wealth of fascinating details concerning Frost's extraordinary life, which shaped both his art and his relationships with his family and fellow writers. Engel analyzes many of Frost’s best poems — most of them famous, but some undeservedly obscure — lavishing particular care and close reading on 'Stopping by Woods,' which is considered by many to be Frost’s most brilliant work.

Optional seated dinner at 6 pm. Lecture at 7:30 pm.
