Fire and Ice: The World of Robert Frost
Date: Tuesday, September, 22, 2015 — 11 a.m.
Speaker: Sam Allen, Author and Historian
Throughout a long and productive life Robert Frost (1874-1963) battled hostile critics and publishers, endured long periods of doubt and depression, and suffered innumerable family tragedies. Poetry carried him through those dark times, and he produced some of the most compelling and beautiful lyrics in the English language. Sam Allen has turned the life of this complex and troubled artist into a riveting one-man show. The play is narrated by Frost himself, returned from the other side to tell his story and bring his timeless artistry to a new, modern audience. Even those who claim to have no interest in poetry have come away moved, amused, and provoked by this unique production.
