Walking in the Woods with Robert Frost (NH Humanities): Thursday, 1/25/24 at 6 PM

Robert Frost’s poetry makes spoken words sparkle and sing. It also gives us an intimate look at nature in New Hampshire. In celebration of both Robert Frost and the natural world around us, author and poet Jeffrey Zygmont recites a selection of Frost’s nature poems, emphasizes their beauty, explains their significance, and describes how they deepen our understanding and appreciation of New Hampshire’s natural environment. The selection includes some of Robert Frost’s best-known poems, and others that equally express admiration for nature. Recited from memory, each poem is accompanied by commentary about the experiences and emotions it conveys, plus background on Frost that gives us insight into the poem’s origin and meaning. The program includes a summary of Frost’s life. This lively discussion and recital of some of Robert Frost’s best poems is a celebration of both New England nature and Robert Frost’s unique gift for capturing it in verse.
