The Figure a Poem Makes

In his short 1939 essay “The Figure a Poem Makes,” the American poet Robert Frost is at his plucky best, offering the reader equal measures of both terse New-England matter-of-factness and slippery riddling on the subject of writing poetry—“the straight crookedness of a good walking stick.” Frequently mined for its pithy lines, this essay is one of Frost’s most concise commentaries on the elusive nature of his craft.
