The poetry of Robert Frost occupies a central and commanding position in American literature, recognition of his stature has been confirmed by three Pulitzer Prizes and the award of the gold medal of the National Academy of Arts and Letters - an honor which the Academy has conferred on a poet only three times in its history. Robert Frost's seventh book of poetry, A Witness Tree, requires no introduction, its lyrics are sharply beautiful and as richly and surprisingly wrought as Frost has ever written.
