Frost: A Hillside Thaw
Posted by: Gregory Marton (---.wireless.csail.mit.edu)

The first line of this poem on your site reads:
"To think to know the country and NOW know"
when it was written:
"To think to know the country and NOT know"

Please correct!
Thanks,
Grem

Hmmm, let's see which websites have which version:

1. Now and stray

[www.americanpoems.com] />
2. Now and stray

[www.ketzle.com] />
3. Now and stray

[www.netpoets.com] />
4. Now and stray

[www.poemhunter.com] />
5. Now and stray

[www.farid-hajji.net] />

This search is by no means exhaustive, but perhaps Mr. Marton might enlighten us on the source of HIS information, a book version of the poem from the Book, New Hampshire, perhaps.

It appears to me that the WONDERING MINSTREL'S version is in error.

Any librarians out there, Pam, Ilsa? Could you check the text of the book New Hampshire to find the correct text for the poem, A Hillside Thaw?

Thanks.

Sounds like cut-and-paste errors multiplied all right. Every one I saw that has now also has stray; those with not have stay. I will wager not and stay are correct, but I know my local library has a copy of his collected poems, so I will check it out next time I am over there.

Is Frost's poem about ignorance or knowledge? --or limitation? Is it about the engaged narrator and his engagement in what s sees? Is it in an uncomplicated way about the appearance in nature of change and rest? What does all of this say about the reader? I think the experimenter Frost is trying to explore our take on these kinds of questions through the tentaive assertions of his construction. What?

Could be that. Could be about lizards, too.

Thanks for the scan and post. My library's copy agreed on not and stay.
