We were excited to learn, on this the fiftieth anniversary of his death, of the new cache of Robert Frost documents that has come to light. The letters, photographs, and recordings come from the personal collection of Jonathan Reichert, a friend of the poet’s, and will be on display at State University of New York at Buffalo starting Thursday. Just to whet your appetite, here’s Frost reading “The Road Not Taken.” It’s good, for those of us who have come to take the poem for granted, to take the words out of the yearbook context and rediscover its forthright beauty.

    Nothing is ever as it seems, and this piece is a reminder if how easily and thoroufhly hypnotized we can be by one man’s pensive yet inviting articulation. I loved the layers of this article. The comparisons, the varying points of view, and the vivid biographical recollections highlighted the points made with almost nostalgic recollection . Beautifully done!
