The Early Poetry of Robert Frost Workshops

February 12 - March 4, 2020 
Every Wednesday, 2 - 3 pm at the 1845 Plains School

Join Pontine Theatre’s Co-Artistic Director, Greg Gathers & Marguerite Mathews, to read and discuss a selection of  early poems by  Robert Frost.   Pontine will premiere a new work based on Frost's early poems in March 2020.  Robert Frost was a long-time summer resident of Franconia NH.  Known for his New England settings, his down to earth, stark depictions of the difficulties of rural farm life, and his use of colloquial speech, Robert Frost is widely admired as a true American Master.  Harriet Munroe, publisher and editor of “Poetry,” wrote that “perhaps no other poet in our history has put the best of the Yankee spirit into a book so completely.” She notes that while Frost's narrative, character-based poems are often dark and satirical, Frost always has a “sympathetic humor” towards his subjects.

These workshops are free and open to the public, no experience necessary.  Workshops are offered on Wednesdays from 2-3:15pm and are open to the public free of charge.  Location is the Historic 1845 Plains Schoolhouse, #1 Plains Avenue, Portsmouth NH. The space is fully accessible with free parking adjacent.   

For futher information please attend the first workshop scheduled for  Wednesday 12 February at 2pm.
