Stopping by the woods of Mr. Frost by Thomas S. Klise Company( visu )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
This filmstrip presents an objective view of Robert Frost's life and the actual influence of his complicated character upon his many works. A short biographical sketch is presented, but the major portion of the film is devoted to investigating whether Frost was merely a nature poet or whether he had a much deeper concern about the fate of mankind. This is an in-depth approach to the skill and technique of Frost but, more important, his emotional outlook as reflected in his verse. Although the filmstrip is not captioned, there is a script.
