Robert Frost's collection of poems is a creative glance into quintessential rural New England life. The author spent his life in the area, and his writing reflects a passionate appreciation. The collections include the much lauded "Fire and Ice," "Nothing Gold Can Stay," and "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," and the illustrations for the collection were drawn by J.J. Lankes. In 1923, these poems won Frost the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.
