schema:reviewBody""In this study, Rachel Buxton offers a assessment of Robert Frost's significance for Northern Irish poetry of the past half-century. Drawing upon a diverse range of previously unpublished archival sources, including juvenilia, correspondence, and drafts of poems, Robert Frost and Northern Irish Poetry takes as its particular focus the triangular dynamic of Frost, Seamus Heaney, and Paul Muldoon. Buxton explores the differing strengths which each Irish poet finds in Frost's work . While Heaney is drawn primarily to the Frost persona and to the 'sound of sense', it is the studied slyness and wryness of the American's poetry, the complicating undertow, which Muldoon values."
