“In Verse for Keeps”: In the Clearing as the Most of Frost

Mark Scott, Nara Women's University

In the Clearing (1962) is the culmination of Robert Frost’s work. Every idea he ever had, every stand he ever made, every locution he ever favored, every tone he ever caught, is taken up in it and finished. It is the true test of Frost’s practice and theory of verse.
