Many of us were introduced to the poetry of the great American poet Robert Frost at school, perhaps through his famous poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”.  But perhaps fewer of us at such a young age were able to fully appreciate the technical and creative brilliance of that poem.  In this talk, Simon will explore the life and influence of this acclaimed poet through the lens of a series of his poems, some well-known and some less so; and will consider why this particular writer was so extensively decorated with awards, and became the first poet to read at a Presidential inauguration.
