Robert Frost Reads Our Favorite Poem

Robert Frost was born on March 26th, 1874. During his lengthy career he won the Pulitzer Prize four times and was chosen as the Poet Laureate for the United States from 1958-1959 by President Eisenhower. He also was the first poet to be a part of an inauguration ceremony in 1961, reading the poem “The Gift Outright” for John F. Kennedy. His poems are “lovely, dark, and deep” and are well loved to this day. In this video, Garrison Keillor introduces footage of Frost reading, “Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening,” and provides interesting context for the poem’s inception.
