Robert Frost grew up in San Francisco and came to live in New England when he was eleven years old. He soon began exploring his new home as an amateur naturalist, and he was endlessly fascinated with the changing landscape: the seasons of the year, and the slow but steady resurgence of nature after people abandoned their farms and moved elsewhere. The features and dynamics of the landscape were the starting points for many of his poems, several of which we will explore in this illustrated presentation.
