Friday, March 23, 2018 - 11:30am

This interactive seminar will meet for a four-week term, one hour per class. According to Stephen Collins, Robert Frost is an under-read and often misunderstood poet. He doesn't fit easily into any preconceived category; however, that is precisely what some people have tried to do with him. Frost said, "I never dared to be radical when young for fear it would make me conservative when old." This seminar will work with some of Frost's better-known poems, as well as some that never seem to get much attention. Poems that will be discussed include: "A Tuft of Flowers" "Mending Wall" "Birches" "After Apple Picking" "Acquainted with the Night" "Desert Places" For those interested in reading a biography, Stephen would recommend Robert Frost, A Life by Jay Parini, or A Literary Life Reconsidered by William Pritchard. Stephen Collins grew up in Cambridge, and received a BA in Literature from UMass Boston. After twenty plus years in a sales career, he is back doing what he truly loves -
