Episode 44: Robert Frost’s New Hampshire

For the first time ever, the Disco takes on a dead poet. And not just any one, but perhaps the most celebrated and popular of American poets, Robert Frost. Julia selected his fourth book, New Hampshire, which includes famous Frost poems such as “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” and “Fire and Ice.” But also plenty of lesser known works.

What follows includes some strong (but relatively peaceful) disagreements about Frost and his legacy.

Up first, in a themed Bookshelf Revisit, your hosts each present a favorite place-based piece of writing. Which includes fiction, non-fiction, and something called a “deep map.”

But don’t worry, Tod manages to work his time as a strip club DJ into the discussion.
