The trials and triumphs of Robert Frost's life flow from narrative to poetry in this one-man performance by Arthur Peterson. The show celebrates the genius of Frost while tracing his life from his youth in San Francisco through his married life on a New England farm, to his early literary success in England and his later years as America's poet laureate. From Frost's homespun Yankee wit and wisdom, we gain personal insight into the poet's developing sensibility and the context of his major poems. The performance includes "Mending Wall," "Birches," "The Road Not Taken," "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," and 10 other poems.More
