Description - Robert Frost's New England by Betsy Melvin
-A happy and unexpected coordination of images, linguistic and photographic.- -- Jay Parini Inspired by the writings of Robert Frost and his view of man and the natural world, professional photographers Betsy and Tom Melvin present beautiful, and sometimes poignant, scenes of the New England landscape in some of its many moods and seasons. Each full-page color photograph is accompanied by a poem, verse, or phrase from Frost which, though often familiar, may provoke us to savor the New England environment anew. The imaginative pairing of photographs and text also conjures up some of the same ambiguity, profundity, and freshness continually offered in Frost's poems.
