Title Time Duration Description
An Evening with Robert Frost By Stephen Collins 7:00 PM 1 hour(s), 30 minutes About the Presentation:
An Evening of Robert Frost is a unique, interactive performance that begins with a short biographical introduction into the poet's life. Robert Frost is greatly misunderstood. Certain people, some academics and politicians included, have tried to pigeonhole him, however the man is far more complicated than the surface indicates. As part of the performance, an open discussion of selected poems included in the Society Newsletter and available at the meeting. Stephen is hoping that people will come having read these poems, willing to discuss them. The performance closes with a dramatic reading of Frost's masterful use of blank verse in the hauntingly memorable "The Death of the Hired Man."
