Comparing Frost : LUSENET : americanlit : One Thread

How does Frost compare to Dickinson and Whitman in terms of content and style?

In my opinion Frost's poetry was much easier to read. The 19th century poet's were a little bit too in depth with their poetry. For instance, Whitman was so lengthy, it took me forever to read his poems and it took me even longer to try and figure them out. Frost's were straight to the point, which I liked. And Dickinson's poetry was ok, but it was just a little different and kind of hard to read. I liked how Frost's poetry was more modern than anyone else's that we've read. It's easier to understand that way.
