Robert Frost so energized his poems with physical, mental, rhythmical, and figurative motion (and emotion) that they are as powerful today as when his first book debuted in 1913. Join poet David Alpaugh as he performs, savors, and explores “The Road Not Taken,” “Mending Wall,” “Design,” “Home Burial,” and other works. Frost’s legendary public image, troubled personal life, and brilliant comments on the art of poetry will come into play.
David Alpaugh’s work has appeared in Evergreen Review, Poetry, Rattle, Scene4, Zyzzyva, and the anthology California Poetry from the Gold Rush to the Present. He has been a finalist for poet laureate of California.
