Rate this:
Featuring Robert Frost at his home in Ripton, Vermont, this 1952 program from the NBC archives opens out in the fields with the poet feeding his horses, then moves to his living room where he proceeds to discuss topics spanning his long and fruitful career. Frost tells of his boyhood in San Francisco and his father's participation in local politics; his family's move to New England when he was still a boy, following his father's death; the poet's own political views, including his mixed opinions about Republicans; the importance of adversity in the development of art forms; his belief that poetry will likely always suffer from neglect; and his dim view of foundations supporting and rushing to the rescue of art, potentially rendering art a by-product. Frost also reads two of his poems: "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "The Drumlin Woodchuck."
