The Pastoral in Robert Frost's Poetry. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, June 2010, Pages: 136
The book deals with the pastoral convention which emerged with many authors like Theocritus, Virgil, Shakespeare, wordsworth and last but not least Frost.This convention investigates the relationship between man and nature and the question of man's place in nature and in the universe in general.The pastoral remains a celebration of beauty and innocence of the shepherd's mode of living.The objective of this book is to identify the pastoral features in Frost's poems. The themes that Frost evokes in his text revolve around the relationship between humanity and nature,human loneliness and isolation.Equally important, Frost's poetic techniques are worth studying. Being two sides of the same coin,the pastoral tradition and the ecocritical theory are the main issues of this work. The book presents the idea of nature from an ecocritical perspective with a focus on the relationship between literature and the natural environment. This book can be classified as a reference in pastoral studies, ecocriticism and The analysis of Frost's poetry and techniques.
