More About The Lyric

No pieces on "contemporary political or social problems –- grief but not grievances, as Frost put it. Frost is helpful in other ways: if yours is more than a lover’s quarrel with life, we’re not your best market. And most of our poems are accessible on first or second reading. Frost again: don’t hide too far away." No translations.

Established 1921.
