A seminar-long introduction to Frost using his poetry, his biography, identifying characteristics, and offering some assignment ideas. We will practice poetry reading together as we take a look at this classic American poet that so many have misunderstood. This seminar is especially appropriate for dialectic and rhetoric ages, but would also serve as exposure for grammar school teachers and parents.
